We present an active learning pipeline to identify hurricane impacts on coastal landscapes. Previously unlabeled post-storm images are used in a three component workflow — first an online interface is used to crowd-source labels for imagery; second, a convolutional neural network is trained using the labeled images; third, model predictions are displayed on an interactive map. Both the labeler and interactive map allow coastal scientists to provide additional labels that will be used to develop a large labeled dataset, a refined model, and improved hurricane impact assessments.
