Abstract
In the framework of the European CAP (Common Agricultural Policy), the European Commission imposes on member states to prevent irregularities, and recommends the control with remote sensing (CwRS) of the declared crops and declared area of crop fields. In the framework of remote sensing procedure, the European Commission, by the way of his Joint Research Centre, advises the use of very high spatial resolution (VHR) satellite data. These data are extraordinary from the point of view of the spatial resolution but the use of these kinds of data involves some problems in the traditional per-pixel classification like the salt and pepper effect and the poor spectral resolution of the VHR data. The region-based classification could solve these problems and allows the use of other features on top of spectral features in the classification process. This study present the potential of the VHR data region-based classification to the classification of the agricultural and rural land cover in the framework of the remote sensing control of the European Union CAP.
