In this paper, we discuss the scientific outcomes of the 2015 data fusion contest organized by the Image Analysis and Data Fusion Technical Committee (IADF TC) of the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society (IEEE GRSS). As for previous years, the IADF TC organized a data fusion contest aiming at fostering new ideas and solutions for multisource studies. The 2015 edition of the contest proposed a multiresolution and multisensorial challenge involving extremely high-resolution RGB images and a three-dimensional (3-D) LiDAR point cloud. The competition was framed in two parallel tracks, considering 2-D and 3-D products, respectively. In this paper, we discuss the scientific results obtained by the winners of the 2-D contest, which studied either the complementarity of RGB and LiDAR with deep neural networks (winning team) or provided a comprehensive benchmarking evaluation of new classification strategies for extremely high-resolution multimodal data (runner-up team). The data and the previously undisclosed ground truth will remain available for the community and can be obtained at http://www.grss-ieee.org/community/technical-committees/data-fusion/2015-ieee-grss-data-fusion-contest/. The 3-D part of the contest is discussed in the Part-B paper .
