Abstract

The remote sensing technique is of great importance in agriculture in determining vegetation cover, monitoring its development, classification, and yield estimation. Various sofwares, mathematical algorithms, and statistical approaches are used to make satellite images meaningful in remote sensing. In this study, it is aimed to determine the rice plant plots and areas by using the Augelab Studio sofware, which is a new approach in artificial intelligence-supported image processing techniques. Using the RGB image covering an area of 2.5 km2 obtained from Google Earth Pro, the classification of paddy rice fields and the calculation of these areas were made. Rice fields from parcels with different plant patterns were separated using Augelab Studio artificial intelligence image processing software using filtering blocks. The real areas of the other rice parcels were determined by the coefficient created by taking the pixel area values of some of the parcels whose total area is known as a reference. It is found that total areas of rice parcels in Augelab Studio and Google Earth Pro programs to be 79.8 and 80.1 hectares, respectively. It has been observed that the areas of the paddy rice parcels can be determined with high accuracy by using Augelab Studio.
