Automated Segmentation and Classification of Aerial Forest Imagery

EasyChair Preprint no. 9211

9 pagesDate: November 1, 2022


Monitoring the health and safety of forests has become a rising problem with the advent of global wildfires, rampant logging, and reforestation efforts. This paper proposes a model for automatic segmentation and classification of aerial forest imagery. The model is based on U-net architecture and relies on dice coefficients, binary cross-entropy, and accuracy as loss functions. While other models reached an accuracy of 45%, this model achieved a classification accuracy of 82.51% and a dice coefficient percentage of 79.85%. This paper demonstrates how complex convolutional neural networks can be applied to aerial forest images to help preserve and save the forest environment.
