Forest area estimates from Landsat MSS and forest inventory plot data



Forest area estimates from Landsat MSS and forest inventory plot data



Research Paper, Southern Forest Experiment Station, USDA Forest Service (SO-211): ii + 7



Estimates of areas of moist and wet forest types in Puerto Rico were made from black and white aerial photographs (scale 1:20 000) taken in 1977 and from a Landsat multispectral scanner scene taken in 1978. Sample ground plots were examined in 1980. Adjusted Landsat area estimates were very similar to those from the photo estimates.
