Natural Resource Information System. Remote Sensing Studies.
Leachtenauer, J.; And Others
A major design objective of the Natural Resource Information System entailed the use of remote sensing data as an input to the system. Potential applications of remote sensing data were therefore reviewed and available imagery interpreted to provide input to a demonstration data base. A literature review was conducted to determine the types and qualities of imagery required to satisfy identified data needs. Ektachrome imagery available over the demonstration areas was reviewed to establish the feasibility of interpreting cultural features, range condition, and timber type. Using the same imagery, a land use map was prepared for the demonstration area. Finally, the feasibility of identifying commercial timber areas using a density slicing technique was tested on multispectral (simulated ERTS) imagery available for a portion of the demonstration area. Related documents are SE 015 414 and SE 015 415. (Author/BL)
