- Use of satellite imagery for the monitoring of elements and structure of the landscape for regional planning

Context and objectives

Project outcome

Expected scientific results

Good classification (global accuracy ranging from 80-90 %) with accurately classified classes. However complete automatisation impossible, as a result, satellite imagery for additional imagery layer. Major advantages: high frequency and uniform content.
Most suitable sensor: Landsat TM because of higher classification accuracy, lower cost and bigger coverage.
