Results of a physically-based methodology to delineate morphometrical-morphostructural subdivision of the Western Carpathian region (Central Europe) from DEMs and their derivatives are presented. Previous suitability evaluation of an object-oriented methodology showed its potential in recognition of morphostructural features. In this study we moved towards a more complex object-oriented approach – fusion of segmentation and classification on several hierarchical levels. In addition,

Decrease of local variance of the delineated objects in comparison with simple segmentations without these upgrades confirms the efficiency of our approach.
