Abstract

This project aimed at improving the analysis techniques of aerial photography for mussel bed recognition and mapping. In this project two techniques were tested; recognition and mapping by human eye and recognition and mapping by automatic detection software. The detection with the human eye was tested in two ways. The first test considered recognition of mussel beds in an area were contours of the previous year were available. The second test concerned a blind recognition test without any knowledge on previous locations of mussel beds.
