    Remote sensing provides an unmatched data source for obtaining information about earth resources. This paper briefly describes the development of remote sensing, then discusses the physical and technological basis for obtaining earth resources information from airborne and spaceborne sensors. It points out that information may be derived from analyzing the spectral, spatial, and temporal variation... View full abstract»

    This paper reviews some recent topics in pattern recognition applied to remote sensing problems. In decision-theoretic pattern recognition, four topics are presented: per-field classifications, cluster analysis and sequential partitioning procedure, feature selection, and estimation of misclassification. The syntactic approach to pattern recognition is then introduced and its application to remote... View full abstract»

    A method of classification of digitized multispectral image data is described. It is designed to exploit a particular type of dependence between adjacent states of nature that is characteristic of the data. The advantages of this, as opposed to the conventional "per point" approach, are greater accuracy and efficiency, and the results are in a more desirable form for most purposes. Experimental re...

    The quadratic form can be expressed as a monotonically increasing sum of squares when the inverse covariance matrix is represented in canonical form. This formulation has the advantage that, in testing a particular class hypothesis, computations can be discontinued when the partial sum exceeds the smallest value obtained for other classes already tested. A method for channel selection is presented... View full abstract»

    A new signature extension method for use with LANDSAT data has been developed. The MASC (Multiplicative and Additive Signature Correction) algorithm uses an unsupervised clustering routine to gain relative information from two data sets. This information is then used to map the signatures derived from one data set onto the other data set. The MASC algorithm can be totally automated, thus making it... View full abstract»

    Three algorithms for line detection, the linear detector, the nonlinear detector, and the semilinear detector are examined. Experiments are conducted on detecting linear features in terrain on LANDSAT-1 images, and on detecting suburban roads on Skylab images. View full abstract»

  • Image Registration Error Variance as a Measure of Overlay Quality

    When one image (the sigal) is to be registered with a second image (the signal plus noise) of the same scene, one would like to know the accuracy possible for this registration. This paper derives an estimate of the variance of the registration error that can be expected via two approaches. The solution in each instance is found to be a function of the effective bandwidth of the signal and the noi... View full abstract»

    Eight channel Skylab multispectral scanner data obtained in January 1974 were used in a level two land-use analysis of Allen County, Indiana. The data set which includes one visible channel, four near infrared channels, two middle infrared channels, and one far infrared channel was from the X-5 detector array of the S-192 experiment in the Earth Resources Experiment Package on board the Skylab spa...

    Forest inventory data were interpreted from color IR photography, transferred to base maps, and digitized for machine processing. The data were registered to geodetic coordinates providing the capability to perform several types of dimensional analysis. Processing data by this technique allowed: (1) Spatial or single variable analysis, (2) overlay or composite analysis (in combination with other v... View full abstract»

    This study was designed to find the locations in Big Quill Lake, Saskatchewan, where the transfer of surficial and aquifer ground-water occurs in the lake bed. Using the findings of a geological survey done between 1966 and 1969, and combining the results of the remote sensing techniques of LANDSAT-1 airborne radio phase detection (EPHASE) and infrared line-scanning, it proved possible to locate n...

    LANDSAT-1 Bulk MSS Computer Compatible Tapes (CCT's) maintain the intrinsic radiometric and spatial qualities of the MSS (NASA, 1972) and as such are potentially superior to MSS 70 mm photographic products in the study of both regional and small scale geological trends. A convenient method of realizing this potential is via a digital-to-analog conversion of processed CCT data and CRT display to pr... View full abstract»
