Programme: TELSAT 3
Start - End: 30 April 1995 - 30 July 1995
Context and objectivesThe main objective is the evaluation of SPOT-XS imagery to distinguish forest structures and to develop a method for the detection of the parasitic plant Chromolena odorata.
Expected scientific results
SPOT-XS is not an adequate mean to distinguish forest structures or to detect the parasitic plant Chromolena odorata, but is adequate to detect cocoa plantations and to distinguish young afforestations from mature forests.
