Resumo: Wetland is one of the most valuable ecological systems in nature. Wetland habitat is a set of comprehensive information of wetland distribution, wetland habitat types are essential to wetland management programs. Maps of wetland should provide sufficient detail, retain an appropriate scale and be useful for further mapping and inventory work (Queensland wetland framework). Remotely sensed image classification techniques are useful to detect vegetation patterns and species combination in the inaccessible regions. Automated classification procedures are conducted to save the time of the research. The purpose of the research was to develop a hierarchical classification approach that effectively integrate ancillary information into the classification process and combines ISODATA (iterative self-organizing data analysis techniques algorithm) clustering, Maximum likelihood and rule-based classifier. The main goal was to find out the best possible combination or sequence of classifiers for typically classifying wetland habitat types yields higher accuracy than the existing classified wetland map from Landsat ETM data. Three classification schemes were introduced to delineate the wetland habitat types in the idea of comparison among the methods. The results showed the low accuracy of different classification schemes revealing the fact that image classification is still on the way toward a fine proper procedure to get high accuracy result with limited effort to make the investigation on sites. Even though the motivation of the research was to apply an appropriate procedure with acceptable accuracy of classified map image, the results did not achieve a higher accuracy on knowledge-based classification method as it was expected. The possible reasons are the limitation of the image resolution, the ground truth data requirements, and the difficulties of building the rules based on the spectral characteristics of the objects which contain high mix of spectral similarities.
