In order to extract the vegetation mask in ecognition, with object base analysis, with creation of the rule sets, the buildings were also classified! Any idea how to extract building from vegetation? I tried to use shape and also asymmetry, but other ideas are most welcome.
There are several online videos showing how to use Image Analysis with Lidar data with eCognition.
Image Classification methods are key to extracting the correct data.

If you are using ArcGIS, you could try the LP360 for ArcGIS: Classify tool.
