Best Short Paper Award, AGILE 2023

Irada Ismayilova and Sabine Timpf won the best short paper award for the paper tittled "Semantic Identification of Urban Green Spaces: Forest" at the AGILE 2023 (Association of Geographic Informtion Laboratories in Europe) conference, held in Delft, Netherlands.




The article explores semantic characteristics of urban forests in the cities of Augsburg and Wuerzbug, and utilizes these characteristics as unique forest Identifiers. Using Rule-based classification technique, forest relevant bio-physical as well as spatial pattern rules are extracted. Finally, these rules are used to accurately map forests in both cities.
