Object-Oriented Classification Course

This course provides in nine units a comprehensive introduction to the field of image classification. It takes the user from the beginner stage to an intermediate level and provides the basis for continued development to advanced level.

The nine units should each take between one and three hours to complete. They include instruction on procedures and exercises.

The ideas and processes of image classification are introduced using Definiens Developer, a software suite which is designed specifically to undertake object-oriented image classification. There is an emphasis on developing clear and systematic procedures for image classification and much of the work of classification is in procedural set up.

The software and LANDSAT TM images used in the course are available through the Landmap Service. Together with a set of images generated for the exercises and support resources these provide all you need to undertake the course successfully.
