Land cover classification using eCognition

Using eCognition, I created a land cover classification (based on the Phase one habitat classes) for the Dyfi catchment in Mid Wales. A rule based approach was conducted using multi-temporal Landsat data and terrain data. This allowed vegetation changes between seasons to be used in delineating classes as well as variables such as aspect, slope and elevation. Rules were also created from values for each landsat band and region growing techniques. The result is displayed below:
