Can I use your dataset LNDST and publish my results as an article?

This is Kaveh Moradkhani, a master’s graduated in computer science. I recently designed a deep learning model to segment images of your LNDST water body segmentation challenge as my thesis project, and I have achieved higher results than other people that have participated in this contest. Now I want to publish my results as a paper but I don’t have any documented method from others to compare my result with. Can I ask you please to send me the top methods that others have used them? higher F1 on this data is 0.96 but I get 0.98. I certainly need higher methods to compare with.
Can I use your data and publish my results as an article?
Please send me the best people of your methods so that I can compare my work with yours.
I am looking forward to your response, in advance I’m very thankful for your kindness

With warm regards,
Kaveh Moradkhani

Hi @kaveh,

Welcome to AIcrowd community! :wave:

I would, first of all, encourage you to submit your submission on the challenge page itself, so you can claim your position on the post-challenge leaderboard. :trophy:

We encourage participants to share their approaches but it still voluntarily done. You can view the methods and codebases for the overall Blitz winners here: Winners Solutions 🎉
(LNDST ranks -> 1, 3, 5, 7, 8)

I guess that should help you with your work.



That great, we will look forward to your paper. But unfortunately, we cannot share the ground truth for the test data. You can simply make a submission and cite your submission id in the paper. Yes, there is an article on the challenge, you can find it here.
