Segmentation and Cover Classification Analyses of Seabed Images





Seascape is a free software program to get semi-automatically segmented images (homogenous regions) from underwater photographs of benthic communities, where each individual patch (species/categories) is routinely associated to its area cover and perimeter. The process starts with a hierarchical segmentation, using a colour criteria adapted to the problem of segmenting complex benthic images. As an end product, the software generates a set of images segmented into classified homogenous regions at different resolution levels (hierarchical segmentation). Cover and perimeter values for each patch are calculated and the results exported to Excel spreadsheets.
