This working plan proposes the use of orthomosaics, produced from very high resolution (circa 10 cm) RGB images, acquired via the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) platform, to detect rows or lines of orange plantation. The image analysis method to be used is based on deep learning, known as convolutional neural networks (CNN). The basic idea to be explored in CNN learning is that there will be no plants outside the plantation line and, consequently, plantation lines cannot be formed without there being plants. The orthomosaic to be used in the experiments corresponds to a rural property located in the municipality of Santa Cruz do Rio Pardo-SP. This orthomosaic shows a field of orange plantation lines, where the plants usually appear connected to each other. The results obtained will be evaluated based on quantitative quality metrics, such as the IoU (Intersection over Union), Precision, Recall, and F1-score.
