Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions resulting from the Land Use, Land-Use Change, and Forestry sector (LULUCF) are estimated and reported in National Communications to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). By definition, the LULUCF sector is a “greenhouse gas (GHG) inventory sector that covers emissions and removals of greenhouse gases resulting from direct human-induced land use, land-use change and forestry activities”. In principle, the annual GHG national inventory…

Mapping land cover and land use from object-based classification: an example from a complex agricultural landscape
From its inception, land-use and land-cover mapping have been major themes in remote-sensing research and applications. Although frequently considered together, land use and land cover (LULC) are
A semi-automated object-oriented model for burned area mapping in the Mediterranean region using Landsat-TM imagery
Pixel-based classification methods that make use of the spectral information derived from satellite images have been repeatedly reported to create confusion between burned areas and non-vegetation
Object based image analysis for remote sensing
TLDR
This paper gives an overview of the development of object based methods, which aim to delineate readily usable objects from imagery while at the same time combining image processing and GIS functionalities in order to utilize spectral and contextual information in an integrative way.
