High resolution satellite data provide high spatial, spectral and contextual information. Spatial and contextual information of image objects are in demand to extract the information from high resolution satellite data. The supraglacial environment includes several features that are present on the surface of the glacier. The extraction of features from supraglacial environment is quite challenging using pixel-based image analysis. To overcome this, objectoriented approach is implemented. This paper aims at the extraction of geo-information from the supraglacial environment from high resolution satellite image by object-oriented image analysis using the fuzzy logic approach. The object-oriented image analysis involves the multiresolution segmentation for the creation of objects followed by the classification of objects using the fuzzy logic approach. The multiresolution segmentation is executed on the pixel level initially which merges pixels for the creation of objects thus minimizing their heterogeneity. This is followed by the development of rule sets for the classification of various features such as blue ice, debris, snow from the supraglacial environment in WorldView-2 data. The area of extracted feature is compared with the reference data and misclassified area of each feature using various bands is determined. The present object oriented classification achieved an overall accuracy of ≈ 92% for classifying supraglacial features. Finally, it is suggested that Red band is quite effective in the extraction of blue ice and snow, while NIR1 band is effective in debris extraction.
