Estimating population has many applications as planning disaster responses, communication infrastructure, or development activities. In 2017, ImageCLEF Lab introduced a new pilot task: the Population Estimation (or Remote) task which aims at estimating the population of an area of interest by exploring Copernicus earth observation data (i.e. free Sentinel-2 satellite images). In line with the goal of FabSpace 2.0 project, a European Unions initiative to bring Geo-Enthusiast together around the 6 European universities in collaboration with Business Incubation Centers, participated to this challenge. This paper presents the results that were obtained by the participants as well as a brief summary of some of the approaches that were used.
