Tidal vegetation classification techniques

The result consists in a set of methods and algorithms for the selection of remote sensors and data attributes and for performing classification of the resulting data to obtain accurate vegetation maps in intertidal environments. The vegetation maps derived should be used to monitor the state and trends of a tidal environment and to evaluate the possible impacts of human activities or of climatic changes. Local authorities responsible for monitoring the Venice Lagoon have been directly involved in the development of the tools and will presumably use them on a systematic basis for policy-support purposes.
