Abstract
    Remote sensing, the analysis of phenomena from a distance represents a useful tool in the mapping of different types of phenomena. The research group of General Botany and Nature Management has been using remote sensing trough aerial photography in the research of mangrove vegetation and dynamics for some time. The advent of very high resolution satellites has arisen the question if the images acquired trough such satellites can be used as an alternative for aerial photography. Preliminary research into the usefulness resulted in positive results but couldn’t make final conclusions because there was a lack of ground truthing data.This study continuous on the results of this preliminary research and will asses the usefulness of the classifications of the very high resolution satellite imagery in the research of the composition of mangrove assemblages and dynamics supplemented with an accuracy assessment.Results point towards a extensive usefulness of the images despite the fact that the accuracy of the classifications is rather low. An analysis of spectral information on its own allows the identification of different assemblages.
