We use crowdsourced GIS data from OpenStreetMap to help automate the mapping of land cover in Landsat satellite imagery. The OpenStreetMap data had limited area coverage, but was useful for building a model which could classify land cover in the other areas.

We analyzed the change in vegetated and urban (impervious) area in the Silang-Santa Rosa sub-watershed of the Philippines to assess the implications related to flood risk. Our main findings were: -The impervious area of sub-watershed increased by 54% (from 3,239 ha. to 4,988 ha.). -The vegetated area decreased by 21% (from 8,509 ha. to 6,760 ha)....

We developed a method for mapping residential areas using freely available satellite imagery. The resultant residential area map can be used for risk assessment (e.g. to estimate the population living in a flood-prone area). Our method can be applied for flood risk assessment in other watersheds in the future.

We developed a fast method for land cover mapping using satellite imagery and crowdsourced geographic data (land use polygon data). The method is less time- and labor-intensive than traditional land cover mapping methods because the crowdsourced data substitutes for training data collected the traditional way (through field survey or visual image...
