Terrestrial habitat map Premier Oil inshore transfer sites

Terrestrial coastal habitat of three sites located in East Falkland. The coastal habitat map covers an area of 200 metres inland from the shore. The habitat map was derived by using World view 2 and an object oriented analysis.

Lineage The satellite images were processed to account for satellite noise, the topography of the landscape and atmospheric interference. For the marine classification, further processing was required to reduce the effects of water surface reflection and the decay of light through the water column. A computer algorithm was applied to each satellite dataset to split the image into meaningful objects in a process called segmentation. These objects were grouped together, in a rule-based classification, on scientific knowledge of the general land cover phenology, the remote sensing spectral characteristics from the satellite imagery and the landscape ecological characteristics. The first iteration was validated in order to link the objects with a land cover. The rules were amended to improve the output, followed by a more intensive field survey. The scientific rules were amended and improved again, and manually checked against the imagery and field data points.
