Abstract

This paper focuses on the attribute weight issue and advocates use of modifiable attribute weights in terrain-based environmental analysis and classification. As an example, the effects of modifying attribute weights were evaluated for fuzzy k-means landform classification in a case study area. A total of 102 classifications were compared with each other and with a soil map, and comparison methods were specifically designed to evaluate the differences between these classifications. The results show that fuzzy k-mean landform classification is sensitive to weight adjustments of adopted terrain attributes
