Short summary
Satellites, planes, and drones capture thousands of images of the Arctic sea ice cover each year. However, few methods exist to reliably and automatically process these images for scientifically usable information. In this paper, we take the next step towards a community standard for analyzing these images by presenting an open-source platform able to accurately classify sea ice imagery into several important surface types.
