Paper Abstract

The unsatisfactory result of traditional pixel-based classification methods in classifying high resolution remotely sensed imagery may be improved by employing image segmentation. Based on a brief review of image segmentation, this paper introduces an image segmentation method--FNEA--which is used in eCognition, the first commercial object-oriented image processing software in the world, for automatic object extraction from high-resolution satellite images and automatic updating of GIS databases. From the point of information extraction, the author analyzes the advantages and disadvantages of the algorithm by using several examples and put forward possible improvements.
