Description:During the last 10 years the GEOBIA community has grown from a niche discipline to a recognized and vibrant branch of geoinformation science, and methods developed by the growing community have helped to tackle problems in virtually all domains where geographic data are used. The growing importance of image processing, be it of traditional airborne or satellite data, but also complex hyperspectral data stacks, videos, or image data used by other communities (e.g., bio-medical and pharmaceutical), has resulted in a multitude of methodological approaches. Segmentation-based approaches have turned out to be an excellent way to incorporate process and feature knowledge, in addition to providing an effective way of dealing with multi-scale data. As a consequence hundreds of scientific publications have greatly enriched the geoinformation science domain over the past decade.
