Toelichting (Engels) Vegetation exerts friction on water and obstructs flow, limiting the capacity of river floodplains to discharge water. Predictions of the discharge capacity of river systems require data on the state and distribution of river floodplain vegetation. Very high resolution aerial images and lidar (ahn2) datasets with a national coverage provide opportunities to produce vegetation maps automatically. As such the entire area of the river floodplains in the Netherlands may be mapped with high accuracy and regular updates, capturing the dynamic state of the vegetation. In this study, the novel datasets are used to map the vegetation of 936 ha of the floodplain on the north-side of the river Nederrijn near Wageningen into ten vegetation structure classes. The method follows object-based image analysis principles.

To support researchers to publish their research Open Access, deals have been negotiated with various publishers. Depending on the deal, a discount is provided for the author on the Article Processing Charges that need to be paid by the author to publish an article Open Access. A discount of 100% means that (after approval) the author does not have to pay Article Processing Charges.

For the approval of an Open Access deal for an article, the corresponding author of this article must be affiliated with Wageningen University & Research.
