Object-oriented classification for urban land cover mapping with ASTER imagery
Abstract:This document demonstrates the potential of using an object-oriented approach to map urban land cover. One objective of this work was to test the ability of the object-oriented classification in the generation of urban land cover maps. Anotehr was to produce an updated land cover map for the city of Beijing from Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflecton Radiometer (ASTER) data, with an evaluation of its accuracy.
