This paper describes the detection of coconut trees using very-high-resolution optical satellite imagery. The satellite imagery used in this study was a panchromatic band of Pleiades imagery with a spatial resolution of 0.5 metres. The authors proposed the use of a histogram of oriented gradients (HOG) algorithm as the feature extractor and a support vector machine (SVM) as the classifier for this detection. The main objective of this study is to find out the parameter combination for the HOG

The study shows that the best parameter combination for the HOG algorithm is a configuration of 3 x 3 blocks, 9 orientation bins, and L2-norm block normalization. These parameters provide overall accuracy, precision and recall of approximately 80%, 73% and 87%, respectively.
