Application of artificial intelligence in land use mapping from satellite imagery
An expert system has been developed for land use mapping from SPOT imagery. The system combines multiple sources of evidence using the Dempster-Shafer theory of reasoning and allows evidence to be propagated at multiple levels in a land cover classification tree. A spatial context rule base has been implemented, allowing pixel classifications to be refined and generalised to yield improved thematic map products.
