Abstract. Semantic segmentation is a fundamental research in remote sensing image processing. Because of the complex maritime environment, the classification of roads, vegetation, buildings and water from remote Sensing Imagery is a challenging task. Although the neural network has achieved excellent performance in semantic segmentation in the last years, there are a few of works using CNN for ground object segmentation and the results could be further improved. This paper used convolution neural network named U-Net, its structure has a contracting path and an expansive path to get high resolution output. In the network , We added BN layers, which is more conducive to the reverse pass. Moreover, after upsampling convolution , we add dropout layers to prevent overfitting. They are promoted to get more precise segmentation results. To verify this network architecture, we used a Kaggle dataset. Experimental results show that U-Net achieved good performance compared with other architectures, especially in high-resolution remote sensing imagery.
