Land cover maps are a vital input variable in all types of environmental research and management. However the modern state-of-The-Art machine learning techniques used to create them require substantial training data to produce optimal accuracy. Domain Adaptation is one technique researchers might use when labelled training data are unavailable or scarce. This paper looks at the result of training a convolutional neural network model on a region where data are available (source domain), and then adapting this model to another region (target domain) by retraining it on the available labelled data, and in particular how these results change with increasing data availability. Our experiments per..
