Deep Learning with ArcGIS Pro Tips & Tricks: Part 1

Satellite imagery can contain a wealth of information, from the number of buildings in a city to the type of crops being grown in fields across the world. But extracting this data from an image is more complicated than working with vector datasets. Historically, to extract the buildings, or swimming pools, or palm trees in an image you would have needed to manually digitize each feature, a process that could take weeks or years depending on the size of the image. But with improvements in computing power and new, accessible tools for deep learning in ArcGIS Pro, anyone can train a computer to do the work of identifying and extracting features from imagery.

At the highest level, deep learning, which is a type of machine learning, is a process where the user creates training samples, for example by drawing polygons over rooftops, and the computer model learns from these training samples and scans the rest of the image to identify similar features. This blog post will be the first in a three-part series diving deeper into the process, starting with the software and hardware requirements to run a deep learning model in ArcGIS Pro.

Deep learning is a type of

Hooked on Phonics review: Great tutoring app for learning disabilities

  1. Hooked on Phonics


    • Frequent glitches

    • Spotty customer service

For the past 35 years, Hooked on Phonics
(available at Hooked on Phonics)

has taught more than 35 million children to read. Now available as an app that includes lessons in reading, spelling, and math, more parents than ever are turning to Hooked on Phonics to supplement their children’s education, including parents of kids who struggle with a learning disability.

As the mother of a son who has a learning disability, I noticed that reading has never come easily to him. Yet, when I’ve turned to app-based learning for assistance, I found most educational apps to either be boring and unenticing, or too game-based to be educational.

Now that I have a new learner in the house in our kindergarten-age son, I decided to give Hooked on Phonics a try. Never having used this program before, would its guarantee to teach kids to read in just 30 days prove true? And better yet, would it be equally helpful in teaching my son with a learning disability to master this challenging skill?

What is Hooked on Phonics?

Hooked on Phonics is an app-based program designed for children pre-K through second grade. It’s
