SInCohMap - land cover mapping using satellite radar interferometry

Comparison of pixel-based and object-based classification results based on the Object-based Image Classification (KTH-SEG). Credits: SInCohMap
The project evaluates the performance of using the interferometric coherence of S-1 time series for land cover and vegetation mapping. One of the main objectives of the project is to quantify the impact in using S-1 InSAR (Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar) data relative to traditional land cover and vegetation mapping using optical data (especially Sentinel-2, hereafter named S-2) or SAR-based (Synthetic Aperture Radar) approaches.

The methodology of classification of the main crops on the basis of ENVISAT ASAR images has been prepared within the project ordered by the Central Statistical Office. It will be applied for crop recognition with the use of recent radar images collected from fall 2014 by Sentinel-1. Research works were conducted using radar images with various polarizations (vertical and horizontal), collected in different parts of vegetation season. The aim of the work was to classify the main crops: winter cereals, spring cereals, corn, rape and sugar beets, using semi-automatic classification methods.

Classification of urban areas

Object-oriented classification of types of urban areas - Warsaw Area. Credits: IGiK
The aim of the project was to study various approaches aimed at preparation of the optimum method for classifying urban areas with the use of high-resolution, new generation satellite images. Three types of satellite data, characterized by various spatial and spectral resolutions, were used: Landsat ETM+, Terra ASTER and QuickBird. Different methods of digital analysis and classification of high-resolution data were analyzed.
