Image Segmentation and Classification in ArcGIS Pro

Thursday, July 13

Extracting information from remotely sensed imagery is a critical step to providing timely information for your GIS. The desktop provides a rich infrastructure to process and exploit imagery. A significant aspect of this is the image segmentation and classification tools that process multispectral imagery, resulting in extracted feature data for the GIS. There are multiple options for segmentation, classification logic, and a flexible mechanism to define data schemas. The options for processing include easy methods to incorporate traditional GIS data into the classification, such as distance to features, and terrain characteristics derived from LIDAR.
