In “Advanced Technology for National Topographic Map Updating” project (ATMU) National Land Survey of Finland investigates how AI (deep learning technology) can be used to update topographic data.

After the Spring Seminar, the ATMU-project has made great progress. In the past half a year, we had a significant movement from the AI beginner to the AI technology developer. We have dived deeply in studying the possibilities of the AI for National topographic map updating. 

Welcome to our winter seminar, which will be held on 1.12.2021 at 13.00-15.00. In this seminar, we will share our knowledge with you. 

Seminar language is English and the event will be held on Teams. 


Register before 28.11: You will receive the Teams link after you have registered to the event.  

For more information, please contact Lingli Zhu or Johanna Ujainen,
