This paper applies three algorithms for detecting communities within networks. It applies them to a network of land cover objects, identified in an OBIA, in order to identify areas of homogenous land use. Previous research on land cover to land use transformations has identified the need for rules and knowledge to merge land cover objects. This research shows that Walktrap, Spinglass and Fastgreedy algorithms are able to identify land use communities but with different spatial properties… CONTINUE READING
