Project: Object-based segmentation and biophysical characterization of saltmarsh vegetation using hyperspectral AHS imagery (HISMAC)

project duration
01-JUN-05 – 30-SEP-06
abstract
The research aims to map saltmarsh vegetation for inventory, management and monitoring purposes in respect to nature reserves and other (semi)-natural areas. The vegetation maps will show the extent, type and change of vegetation types and their biophysical/biochemical characteristics. The main scientific objective is to develop object-based approaches for hyperspectral image analysis that facilitate the management of these threatened ecosystems.
