Aerospace remote sensing for domestic crop area estimation by the United States Department of Agriculture



Aerospace remote sensing for domestic crop area estimation by the United States Department of Agriculture



Quarterly Journal of International Agriculture 23(3): 246-263



After the launch of Landsat 1 in 1972, the US Statistical Reporting Service (SRS) has pursued an active research programme to develop methodology and data processing systems for using Landsat digital MSS (multispectral scanner) data for improving the existing US programme of crop area estimates. After 5 years of developmental studies, a major pilot test of the resulting methodology and data processing system was conducted in 1978 for Iowa.
