Paper Abstract

In remotely sensed imagery with high spatial resolution, more detail spatial information of mangrove forest can be shown. It is important to find a method to effectively use the spatial information so as to improve the accuracy of mangrove forest classification. In the study, different classification schemes (including pixel-based classification and object-based classification), different classifiers, and different texture features have been conducted. The classification results of SPOT-5 image of Matang Mangrove Forest Reserve in Malaysia show that the performances of object-based classifications are better than that of pixel-based classifications. However, the classifier type is important for object-based classification. The accuracies of nearest neighborhood classifiers, which are widely used in object-based classifications, were obviously lower that that of maximum likelihood classifiers and support vector Machines. It is also shown that the involvement of second-order texture features can't effectively improve the classification accuracy of neither object-based classifications nor pixel-based classifications.
