Image/Object Classifier. This tool uses Multiband Imagery and Point data to classify different vegetation types with emphasis on Juniper. It will calculate percent cover and density which is then visualized using a polygon fishnet to identify the Juniper phase. Phase categories are calculated as:

  • Phase 1 = >1 and <= 15% juniper cover
  • Phase 2 = >15 and <= 45% juniper cover
  • Phase 3 = > 45% juniper cover
Pre-requisites: This tool requires ArcGIS 10.3.1 (or later) and the Geostatistical Analyst extension. Please read the tutorial to get started.
