Paper Abstract

There is important significance for hydrophytes extraction. It is the basis of water pollution control decision. For the purpose of hydrophytes extraction, the vegetation is classified into two species: submersed vegetation and emerged vegetation. And to obtain a better categorization map, three different classification methods as ISODATA, MLC and Decision tree are put forward in the paper. The analysis is performed on the Landsat TM image of Taihu lake acquired in 7, 2002. The result shows that the decision tree classification acquires the best extraction effect.
