This paper proposes an automated method for mass scale mapping of
drumlin orientation. The drumlins of the Chautauqua Drumlin Field in the
upstate New York and Pennsylvania, USA are composed of three major
sections: east sloping side, west sloping side and the flat- topped middle
portion or MidRidges. Due to their central location, MidRidges reflect exact
orientation of individual drumlins. The automated method has been
developed using object-oriented classification available through
eCognition software. The 30 m resolution National Elevation Dataset
(NED)USGSDigital Elevation Model has been used as a source data.
