Combining ArcGis and eCognition for More Effective Stand Delineation
Authors: Adrian Madejczyk, Dorota Micek
Semi-automatic stand delineation has been made possible thanks to lidar and remote sensing methods. By combining eCognition and ArcGis we have created a method that uses the large selection of geoprocessing tools and analysis available from ESRI and the ability of pattern recognition and neighbourhood context in eCognition. The result is a method that demands minimum manual work and a high accuracy for the user compared to older methods for stand delineation.
