LAYERED LANDSCAPESImage Reclassification – GISBlack Water National Wildlife Refuge, MarylandProject DescriptionPerform a supervised classification using aerial photography with 4-band (true-color and color-infrared) and 1-foot resolution imageProblem:The increase of cultivated areas threatens ecologically sensitiveareas, such as wetlands, water and forest. The solution to mitigatethis problem was to identify the different classes types to formulate ‘Training Samples’ of the 4-band (true-color and color-infrared) and 1-footguidelines for the future. The categorization of the land cover resolution image inform the Image Classification Tool in ArcMapclasses (forest, cultivated field, barren area, developed/impervious,wetland and water) can be accomplished through the analysis ofaerial photography.Strategies:This image is resulted from remote sensing information thatprovides information about the features within the study area.Image Classification tool provide an computerized method toclassify the areas, classes in an image, by using training samplespolygon analysis per land cover class.Application:The classification and analysis of the different land cover areas allowsus to see the evolution of each class such as the increase ordecrease of natural areas in urban areas or to classify different spatialconfiguration of ecologically sensitive areas in regional landscapes.Coursework from GIS 520, Advance Geospatial AnalyticsNC State University
