Neural Net Vessel Classifier

In addition to identifying vessels using information in the AIS data and matching this data to vessel registries (which comprise our self-reported and known vessel lists), we are using a convolutional neural network to identify the geartypes associated with different vessels.

The methods of this classifier are described in detail in our paper, Tracking the global footprint of fisheries). We have also open sourced the code, which you can access at this github repo.
