    Abstract: Extracting information of mangroves at different tide levels from remote sensing images is challenging. In this study, we investigated the use of multiple features for mangrove information extraction, including spectral features, vegetation indices (NDVI, NIMI), and texture features. The accuracy of the extraction was also analyzed. We collected re... Show More
