Preliminary results of an object-based methodology for delineation of the morphostructural division of the Western Carpathians region are presented. Normalized slope gradient and vertical dissection were used as input layers. Automated object extraction was carried out using a multi-resolution segmentation algorithm implemented in the eCognition® Developer software. Visual evaluation and preliminary quantitative quality assessment of the resulting segments boundaries showed a potential of using this method for delineation of objects fairly similar to the expert- made (manually drawn) traditional geomorphologic regions. Future work on both segmentation and classification, as well as quantitative accuracy assessment of the objects is needed.
