Recent advances in computer vision and the high availability of Earth Observation (EO) imaging have enabled the generation of information about natural hazards. Detecting areas affected by natural hazards is of obvious immediate importance. The EO images are the main source of spatial information from hazard impacts in remote and large-scale areas. Modern deep learning methods have recently automated EO image processing to produce applicable highlevel information. In particular, these methods are preferred over longstanding physics-based conventional solutions for detecting the natural hazard of landslides. The updated knowledge of ground surface deformations caused by landslides developed from EO images and machine learning provides a critical landslide inventory, essential for a better understanding of landslides, identifying triggers, and identifying prone areas. A special session of the CDCEO’22 workshop presents findings from the first globally distributed, multi-sensor landslide detection competition, named as Landslide4Sense.
