This work was initiated as a feasibility study for the classification of inter-tidal surfaces in Langstone harbour using CASI scanner imagery collected by the NRA as part of its National Baseline survey. Previous classifications have relied on standard aerial photography interpretation techniques being applied to colour infra-red photographs of the area. This method is very time consuming and expensive. The use of automatic image processing techniques would, once proven, Would offer a much more flexible, quick and cost effective method of monitoring the inter-tidal vegetation. In addition the use of more modem techniques would allow other work such as change detection and dependency analysis (ie species ys height) as well as GIS functions to be used.
