Paper Abstract

In the paper, we described the methodology enabling automatic land cover pattern change analysis, using satellite data. We relied on the post-classification comparison technique with the classification process based on a supervised approach, joining image segmentation, knowledge-based rules to extract a training set, and the maximum likelihood decision rule on two hierarchical levels. The Polish Carpathians has been studied at a medium scale level, over a period of 19 years (1987-2006). The information about land cover was obtained from Landsat TM and ETM+ images. The overall accuracy received in this approach amounted 88%.
