Object-Based Image Analysis for Extraction of Mangrove Forests in Rehabilitated Areas of Bacolod, Lanao Del Norte, Philippines using Lidar Data and GIS

2018 Journal of Applied Sciences Research  
Through LiDAR technology, a total of three species of mangroves were classified from Bacolod, Lanao del Norte, Philippines. Mangroves can be extracted using Object-Based Image Classification and SVM at an overall accuracy of 98.44% with a KIA of 97%. Consequently, using this workflow, mangroves can already be extracted in a large-scale or municipal or city level with acceptable overall accuracy assessments.
