About this book

Advances in earth observations sensors and GIScience have led to the emerging fields of Object-based Image Analysis (OBIA). The need for timely and accurate geo-spatial information is steadily increasing. This book discusses means, technologies and approaches related to the processing and analysis of multi-sensor, multi-resolution data with a focus on the generation, modelling and classification of objects. In high resolution images these objects are typically derived through regionalisation principles. The advancement of feature recognition and advanced image analysis techniques facilitate the extraction of thematic information for policy making support and informed decisions. The applications also address the integration of Geographic Information and the concurrent developments of GIScience and vanquish limitations of pixelwise image processing by exploiting image information context-driven and "intelligently".
