Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Computer analysis of integrated digital data sets can be exploited for geomorphological classification using automated methods developed in the remote sensing community. In this study, geomorphological classification in a moderate- to high-relief area dominated by slope processes in southwest Yukon Territory, is performed with a combined set of geomorphometric and spectral variables in a linear discriminant analysis. An automated method was developed to find the boundaries of geomorphological objects and to extract the objects as groups of aggregated pixels. The geomorphological objects selected are slope units
