Field-based classification of different resolution images and the filtering effects on the accuracies

Ozdarici, A.
Field-based classifications of multispectral SPOT 4, SPOT 5, IKONOS, QuickBird and the pansharpaned (PS) QuickBird images were performed for an agricultural land located near the 'Karacabey Plain' of Turkey. The main objectives were to evaluate the classification accuracies and to find out the effects of filtering on the accuracies of different resolution images for agricultural crop mapping. To fulfill these objectives, first, a Maximum Likelihood Classification (MLC) was performed on each satellite image in a per-pixel manner. Second, for each agricultural field, the frequencies of the classified pixels were computed and the majority class was assigned to each parcel as the class label. In order to see the differences between all bands (blue, green, red, near-infrared, and shortwave near-infrared), common bands (green, red, near-infrared), and filtered bands, the images were analysed using different number of bands. Then, the confusion matrices were computed to get the accuracies of the results. Of the images used, the IKONOS XS, QuickBird XS, and QuickBird PS images provided relatively higher overall accuracies (about 85%) than the other images. On the other hand, for the SPOT4 XS image, the lowest accuracies of around 75% were computed.

Evaluation of site effect within the tectonic basin in the northern side of Ankara
Eker, Arif Mert; Kockar, Mustafa Kerem; Akgün, Haluk (2015-06-18)
This study mainly concentrates on the determination of site effects for the Plio-Quaternary and especially alluvial soils of the Cubuk district and its close vicinity in Ankara, Turkey. In the study area, particularly in the vicinity of the asymmetric graben that has formed due to the tectonic activities along the NE-SW trending normal faults, a microtremor survey was implemented to identify the local site response under a possible seismic event. The results were compared and correlated by using passive and...
Refinements in biostratigraphy of the foraminiferal zone MFZ11 (late early Visean, Mississippian) in the Cebecikoy Limestone (Istanbul Terrane, NW Turkey) and palaeogeographic implications
OKUYUCU, CENGİZ; Vachard, Daniel; Göncüoğlu, Mehmet Cemal (2013-01-01)
The Cebecikoy Limestone from the Variscan flysch of the Istanbul Terrane is assigned to the foraminiferal MFZ11 zone (late early Visean, formerly V2a). This zone is essentially the range zone of Uralodiscus rotundus. Additional bioevents are proposed for characterizing the upper part of this biozone (MFZ11B subzone): the LAD of Eoendothyranopsis and the FAD of Pararchaediscus and Conilidiscus. The majority of foraminifers and algae, belonging locally to MFZ11 are well-known, except for the following taxa: I...
Analysis of the North Anatolian Shear Zone in Central Pontides (northern Turkey): Insight for geometries and kinematics of deformation structures in a transpressional zone
Ellero, Alessandro; Ottria, Giuseppe; Marroni, Michele; Pandolfi, Luca; Göncüoğlu, Mehmet Cemal (2015-03-01)
The western part of the North Anatolian Shear Zone at the southern boundary of the Central Pontides in Turkey, was investigated in the Kursunlu-Arac area by means of a geological-structural field study. In this area the North Anatolian Shear Zone results in a transpressional deformation zone that extends between two master faults striking parallel to the main shear direction. The main systems of structures identified in the deformation zone appear to be oriented parallel to the directions predicted by Riede...
Tectonic geomorphology and Plio-Quaternary structural evolution of the Tuzgolu fault zone, Turkey: Implications for deformation in the interior of the Central Anatolian Plateau
Krystopowicz, Neil J.; Schoenbohm, Lindsay M.; Rimando, Jeremy; Brocard, Gilles; Rojay, Fuat Bora (Geological Society of America, 2020-10-01)
Situated within the interior of the Central Anatolian Plateau (Turkey), the 200-km-long Tuzgolu extensional fault zone offers first-order constraints on the timing and pattern of regional deformation and uplift. In this study, we analyze the morphometrics of catchments along the Tuzgolti range-front fault and the parallel, basinward Hamzali fault using a variety of measured morphometric indicators coupled with regional geomorphic observations and longitudinal profile analysis. In addition, we use field and ...
Use of sedimentary structures in the recognition of sequence boundaries in Upper Jurassic-Upper Cretaceous peritidal carbonates of the Western Taurides, Turkey
Yılmaz, İsmail Ömer; Altıner, Demir (Informa UK Limited, 2001-08-01)
Subtidal, intertidal, and supratidal carbonate facies are recognized in the Upper Jurassic (Kimmeridgian)-Upper Cretaceous (Cenomanian) peritidal carbonates of the Fele area (Western Taurides, Turkey). Vertical stacking patterns of these facies are of a cyclical character, shallowing upward is the trend of the cyclicity in these carbonate facies. In-situ karstic breccias, collapse breccias, caliche (laminar calcrete), "Microcodium" accretion, and root casts are structures commonly indicative of third-order ...
