Table 9 Examples of application of image segmentation object-based classification towards SDGs using EO data

From: Monitoring sustainable development by means of earth observation data and machine learning: a review

SDGs Field Main finding References
SGD 11 (Sustainable Cities and Communities) Land cover Compared four OB classifiers for the classification of a suburban area with data provided by Landsat-8 and proved that SVM had the best performance among all [151]
Land use Proposed OB approach for urban land use classification using VHR images [152]
SGD 15 (Life on Land) Land cover Tested the performance of PB and OB classification with a hyperspectral dataset and found that OB was better than PB approach [153]
Land use Compared an OB and PB approach using aero photogrammetric images and the results showed that OB classifier performed better compared to PB [154]
