An assessment of the suitability of object-based image analysis to automatically delineate morphostructural subdivisions of the Western Carpathians is presented. Segmentation of three geomorphometric layers (elevation, slope gradient and vertical dissection) enabled us to delineate relatively homogeneous regions that represent the main active morphostructures of the Western Carpathians. Although only about 40% of the automatically delineated boundaries matched quantitatively the traditional geo-morphological regions as manually drawn by experts, this approach showed potential in automating the morphostructural subdivision in greater consistency and detail than before.
