Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development
The Dept of Primary Industry and Regional Development (DPRID) currently runs an extensive surveillance program for the noxious skeleton weed. The identification and locating of skeleton weeds is currently done by contractors while sitting in a vehicle.
Phobos developed an application for identifying and locating skeleton weeds from aerial imagery. OptiWeed is an application developed to assist in the storage, categorisation and recognition of weeds using machine learning techniques.
