- TREES-program: 'Relation between the architecture of tropical forest and its spectral signature at different spatial resolutions'

Context and objectives

The general objective is to describe tropical forest architecture with the aim of incorporating the latter forest characteristic in a remote sensing based forest typology classification.

Project outcome

Expected scientific results

Texture image analyses were performed and led to a marked difference between the transects. From the multispectral SPOT data only the red band displayed a consistent trend with the different architecture parameters. A weak relation has been found between the crown surface and average height and the red SPOT bands.
