Basic knowledge of manipulating spatial (image) data will be an advantage
The course is demonstrated using ArcMap (v 10.7). You can obtain a trial license from ESRI website-.
Land Use/Land Cover mapping with Machine Learning in ArcGIS
This course is designed to take users who use ArcGIS for basic geospatial data/GIS/Remote Sensing analysis to perform more advanced geospatial analysis tasks including object-based image analysis using a variety of different data and applying Machine Learning state of the art algorithms. In addition to making you proficient in ArcGIS for spatial data analysis, you will be introduced to a powerful opportunity to learn how to use ArcGIS also for advanced satellite-based image analysis for the most demanded task in Remote Sensing, that is land use and land cover mapping.
I’m very excited that you found my LULC Advanced course. This course is designed to equip you with the practical knowledge of advanced Land Use and Land Cover (LULC) mapping, which is one of the core skills for any Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Remote Sensing analyst. By the end of the course, you will feel confident and completely understand and apply advanced Geospatial analysis including performing Machine Learning algorithms for land use and land cover mapping and learning object-based image analysis and basics of segmentation. All this you will be able to carry out on the real data in one of the most popular GIS software which is ArcGIS.
This course is different from other training resources. Each lecture seeks to enhance your GIS and Remote Sensing skills in a demonstrable and easy-to-follow manner and provide you with practically implementable solutions. You’ll be able to start analyzing spatial data for your own projects, and gain appreciation from your future employers with your advances GIS skills and knowledge of the cutting edge LULC techniques.
In the course, you will be able to learn how to carry out all stages of LULC mapping from acquiring satellite data to assessing the accuracy of your map and design a beautiful change map readily available to be inserted in your document or report.
The course is ideal for professionals such as geographers, programmers, social scientists, geologists, and all other experts who need to use LULC maps in their field and would like to learn fundamentals of LULC and change detection in GIS. If you’re planning to undertake a task that requires to use a state of the art classification algorithms for creating, for instance, land cover and land use maps, this course will give you the confidence you need to understand and solve such geospatial problem.
One important part of the course is the practical exercises. You will be given some precise instructions, codes, and datasets to create LULC maps and change maps using the ArcGIS software.
In this course, I include downloadable practical materials that will teach you:
– Advance your skills in ArcGIS
– Understand the concept of Machine Learning and main types of machine learning in GIS including supervised and unsupervised Machine Learning Algorithms
– Learn how to classify satellite and UAV images with different machine learning algorithms in ArcGIS
– Learn how to perform training, validation data collection and accuracy assessment
– Learn how to perform object-based image analysis
– Perform image segmentation in ArcGIS
