Use the Text SAM Deep Learning Model in ArcGIS Pro

Text SAM is an open-source sample model that can be prompted using text inputs to extract features of various kinds. This pre-trained deep learning model combines the Segment Anything Model (SAM) with Grounding DINO to create a new deep learning package available for download from the ArcGIS Living Atlas of the World. Extracted features, described by the input text prompts, can be any object of interest such as vehicles, swimming pools, ships, airplanes, solar panels, and more! VIDEO
