Assessment of Thematic Mapper imagery for forestry applications under Lake States conditions

Assessment of Thematic Mapper imagery for forestry applications under Lake States conditions

PEandRS Photogrammetric Engineering and Remote Sensing 54(1): 61-68

Landsat Multispectral Scanner (MSS) data are useful only for identifying land-cover classes in the Lake States. The higher resolution data from the Landsat Thematic Mapper (TM) was evaluated in a preliminary study of 2 sites in Wisconsin with distinctly different forest characteristics. Data were analysed using both visual and computer-assisted interpretation techniques. Separation of broadleaved trees vs. conifers and upland vs. lowland forest types was very accurate.
