This paper forwards an advanced subpixel mapping algorithm to provide detailed information on the spatial distribution of land covers within a mixed pixel. This is achieved by utilizing the area proportions of the endmember components of a mixed pixel and its neighboring pixels. Fraction values, obtained through soft classification, are used to calculate the area ratios of the endmember components of the mixed pixel and the neighboring pixels. After testing the algorithm with both artificial and synthetic images, the performance of the algorithm can be evaluated as being computationally efficient and accurate for obtaining comprehensive information on the spatial distribution of land covers.
