The channel encoding scheme.

The Channel Encoding scheme. Each layer in the image stack represents the geographic distribution of geo-objects of a particular Web Ontology Language (OWL) class.

Remotely sensed imagery is a well-established data source for spatial predictions, however, it comes with some disadvantages. Here, we explore how another data source could be used for spatial predictions, namely, geospatial vector data, by looking at a specific case study: LULC classification. We show how vector data can be encoded for an artificial neural network, making it geographically aware and enable it to predict LULC classes. We use two different encoding schemes as well as two different artificial neural network architectures. Our results suggest that geospatial vector data can be used for LULC classification and that the type of encoding and artificial neural network plays a significant role.
