The Korea National Park Service has been monitoring diverse natural resources (NR), and they constructed a GIS-based natural resources database in 2009. It can be used to analyze biotopes and habitats in national parks, and we developed an automated biotopemapping tool available in the ArcGIS software package (ESRI). The ArcBiotope tool was introduced in our previous work, and is being updated continuously. In this paper, we present a case study of a detailed biotope classification using the ArcBiotope and KOMPSAT-2 images of Jirisan national park. To map a detailed biotope, an object-based image analysis was conducted with the aid of the ArcBiotope and the KOMPSAT-2 information. The results showed that the ArcBiotope efficiently processed burdensome classification steps, and the KOMPSAT-2 was useful for getting a detailed biotope. The ArcBiotope cannot yet do all processes automatically, but it provides aggregated GIS functions for biotope mapping, through pre-processing, biotope mapping, environmental-factors generation, and habitat-mapping toolsets. KOMPSAT-2 also provided high-resolution spatial information. Its 1 m resolution was valuable for detailed biotope acquisition. The results demonstrated that the use of the ArcBiotope and KOMPSAT-2 could make biotope mapping of Korea's national parks more efficient and effective. Source
