This seminar will provide an overview of land classification applications of objectbased
image analysis and lidar. The goal will be to demonstrate the practical value of
incorporating these techniques into mapping efforts in various disciplines. Emphasis
will be placed on the advantages to be gained from integrating multiple data types,
such as optical imagery and the new Minnesota statewide lidar dataset, into a
classification workflow. Recent research results will be used to illustrate current and
potential application areas.
