Classification of the Earth Cover for the Regions around the College of Science / Thi Qar University from Satellite Imagery


In this study, we made a supervised classification of the satellite imagery for the neighboring regions around the Orientation of the College of Science in Thi Qar University to know the features of the earth cover accurately. These features may really effects the contents of the local environment inside the College, where some of biological tests and experiments are made.The aim of this study is to get accurate information about the percentage of the land cover there from a high resolution image (3 m). Such image is very difficult to be classified by the standard methods of classification with the common software like (ERDAS Imagine). So, we develop our classification by certain manual treatments by using the tools of the (Adobe Photoshop) package to make final map and the accurate percentages.
