Abstract:

This letter demonstrates the utility of landscape pattern metrics for increasing classification accuracy of land cover. Three examples are provided for the use of a landscape shape complexity measure in remote sensing segmentation‐based classification schemes. The examples include: (1) classification of thaw lakes on the North Slope of Alaska; (2) classification of drained basins in Alaska; and (3) classification of natural vs. anthropogenic pastures in Bolivia. In these examples the Square Pixel Metric ( SqP ) was applied to objects created from image segmentation to distinguish between categories that had similar spectral properties but different shape complexity values.
