The usefulness of high resolution satellite data for classification of shallow sea beds has been evaluated. The goal was to identify vegetation coverd areas and different species of bentich vegetation in the Gränsö-Singö archipelago. The results indicate that it could be possible to separate vegetation covered from unvegetated areas down to the maximum visible depth. The results also indicated that classification of specific species can be done in very shallow waters and/or if abundant in clean… CONTINUE READING
