Bool and Hacks Lagoons Landcover Model Output 2022

The Friends of Bool and Hacks Lagoon group and BirdLife Australia provided Lynker Analytics with aerial photography for the Bools and Hacks lagoon. The imagery consisted of 66 ECW files which covered the Bool lagoon at a resolution of 0.106m. In addition to the imagery, twenty-seven ground truth points were also provided to assist in the correct annotation of the eight target classes. Lynker then manually annotated these images into a polyline annotation dataset. The classes followed by their class id are: • Tussock 1 • Tree 2 • Sedge 3 • Reed 4 • Grasses 5 • Open Water 6 • Ground 7 • Aquatic Floating 8 Lynker used a machine learning training process called supervised learning, whereby a machine learning model is trained using example image and annotation pairs to learn the same decision outcomes on new or previously unseen images. Machine Learning is notoriously data-hungry and model accuracy is sensitive to the quality and quantity of input data. An annotation process that used polylines to quickly develop a large dataset of positively annotated pixels was used to develop the dataset of target classes to train the supervised model.

The model’s performance on holdout data was shown to have a classification accuracy of 0.965 and mean F1 score also of 0.965. Sedge was the lowest performing class often instead being predicted to be grasses or ground. The aquatic floating class was the highest performing class in the holdout set, every pixel of this class in the holdout set was correctly predicted and no other classes were incorrectly predicted to belong to the aquatic floating class.
