Coastal wetlands play a central role in the provision of ecosystem services, ranging from the mitigation of damage caused by hurricanes and floods to an essential grounds for carbon sequestration, water purification, and habitat support. This study reports the mapping of Indonesia’s coastal wetland cover as three distinct classes: mangroves, peatlands, and wetlands. Topographic indices from Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM) data were created and remotely sensed imagery from the Landsat 8 mission were jointly used to create a classification based on training data of South Central Kalimantan and South West Kalimantan. The resulting map is to be determined.
