A system detects settlements from images. A processor reads image data. The processor is programmed by processing only a portion of the image data designated a settlement by a user. The processor transforms the image data into a settlement classification or a non-settlement classification by discriminating pixels within the images based on the user's prior designation. The system alters the appearance of the images rendered by processor to differentiate settlements from non-settlements.
