Object attribute Description FID The ID number of the object Area_Pxl Area of the object measured in cells (1 cell is appr. 1 km²) Asymmetry Relative length compared to a regular object. The higher the value, the higher the asymmetry of the object is Border_ind Border index measures how jagged an object is. It is calculated as the ratio between the border(More)
—In most landform classification studies – either per cell or object-based – the authors have ignored modeling the semantics of landforms explicitly. Thus, landform classification schemes rely on individual knowledge, and are too much tailored to specific areas and/or scales. Integration of structured knowledge models in the classification process has been(More)
Earth observation (EO) data are of great value for the detection of landslides after triggering events, especially if they occur in remote and hardly accessible terrain. To fully exploit the potential of the wide range of available remote sensing data, innovative and reliable landslide (change) detection methods are needed. To overcome the limitations of(More)
—We introduce an object-based method to automatically classify topography from SRTM data. The new method relies on the concept of decomposing land-surface complexity into more homogeneous domains. An elevation layer is automatically segmented and classified at three scale levels that represent domains of complexity by using self-adaptive, data-driven(More)
