A basic reference for those considering digital imagery, particularly satellite imagery for vegetation mapping. Contents: using remote sensing and GIS for mapping vegetation; remote sensors and remotely sensed data; determining appropriate uses for satellite imagery; defining the classification scheme; collecting reference data; assessing accuracy; creating polygons; project management; the basic tour; and case studies. Important terms and ideas are introduced while showing the progression of key activities in the classification and mapping process.Acquisition and maintenance of computer hardware and software will account for approximately one-third of the entire cost of implementation. Although the use of remote sensing technologies can be a cost-effective way to develop GIS dataanbsp;...
