Paper Abstract

In this paper is presented a land use/cover classification methodology of the rural/urban fringe, by means of the application of a neuronal network, with resource to the multiresolution image segmentation, construction of complex elements through object oriented analysis and integration of not spectral (ancillary) information. The study area is the municipality of Almada, located in the south bank of Tagus River and corresponding to one of the core regions of the Lisbon Metropolitan Area (Portugal). The data used was 2004 HRVIR SPOT images fused with supermode panchromatic image and the Portuguese urban quarter statistical data. The developed procedure is based in five steps: 1) Legend creation; 2) deriving statistical ancillary data; 3) deriving object (texture) data; 4) deriving spectral data and 5) neural network classification.
