The process of image segmentation scheme for marine images is used in area of marine applications in order to detect and identify any ships or boats when it is missed and is identified via satellite image are when the images are taken from a high distance. A system for the automatic identification and segmentation of an object over the water area is done by using K-Means clustering based segmentation algorithm is proposed in this paper. By using this algorithm a ship can be segmented and identified that object seen over the sea or ocean. When it is identified the ship is alone can be segmented from that image and is shown here. Peak Signal to Noise Ratio (PSNR) values are evaluated for obtaining the performance measures of our system.
