Remote sensing and agricultural statistics: Crop area estimation through regression estimators and confusion matrices



Remote sensing and agricultural statistics: Crop area estimation through regression estimators and confusion matrices



International Journal of Remote Sensing 14(6): 1215-1219



Landsat Thematic Mapper (TM) imagery was used to estimate crop areas. The estimates have been made using two methods: regression and regression plus a confusion matrix. The latter was the most accurate, but the effort and cost was the same.
