Paper Abstract

The Grand Canal of China is the longest ancient canal in the world. It is an astonishingly huge project in the history of Chinese civilization. However, some sections have already disappeared as the development of society and change of environment. It can be detected by using very high resolution image. Object-oriented method based on image segmentation is being actively studied in the high resolution image process and interpretation to extract a variety of thematic information. It includes two consecutive processes: first the image is subdivided into separated regions according to the spectral and spatial heterogeneity in the image segmentation process and then the objects are assigned to a specific class according to the class's detailed description in the image classification process. The result shows that the object-oriented approach can realize the full potential of the very high resolution image, have higher accuracy compared with traditional classification and allow quantitative analysis of land use, simplification of Remote Sensing and GIS integration.
