Lineage The terrestrial classification required the use of groundtruth surveys, together with WorldView-2 imagery and a DTM. Object-based image analyses was used to create and populate spectrally similar segments into meaningful classes. A map with habitat classes obtained from object-based analysis was used on the field as reference for ground truthing. In each polygon a plant identification took place and the plants were listed according to their abundance. The combination of plants and their abundance was used to explain the various classes of habitat which helped refining the object-based classification of satellite imagery.
