Following publication of the original article (Iwahashi et al. 2021), the authors identified an error in Fig. 6. The correct Fig. 6 is given below. The authors would like to correct the cited author name under the heading Base classification using k-means clustering and thresholding.

The sentence currently reads:

The efficacy of using polygons, i.e., terrain or slope units, as a criterion for classification has been noted by a number of researchers (Alviolicor et al. 2020).

The sentence should read:

The efficacy of using polygons, i.e., terrain or slope units, as a criterion for classification has been noted by a number of researchers (Alvioli et al. 2020).

The original article (Iwahashi et al. 2021) has been corrected.
