Application of HYPERION data to agricultural land classification and vegetation properties estimation in Switzerland


Eckert, Sandra; Kneubühler, Mathias (2004). Application of HYPERION data to agricultural land classification and vegetation properties estimation in Switzerland. In: XXth ISPRS Congress, Istanbul, Turkey, 12 July 2004 - 23 July 2004, 866-872.

Abstract

On August 18, 2002, the Hyperion hyperspectral imager onboard the EO-1 platform recorded data over an intensively used agricultural area in north western Switzerland, the Limpach Valley. The sensor’s 198 spectral bands between 400 and 2500 nm (Level 1B1) and a spatial resolution of 30 m bear the potential for both a detailed land use classification and an accurate estimation of biophysical and biochemical properties of heterogeneously vegetated areas. This study evaluates the potential of HYPERION data for land use classification and vegetation properties estimation (e.g., LAI) in a typical Swiss agricultural environment with its small-spaced fields. A Spectral Angle Mapper approach and a multi-scale object-oriented method are applied for agricultural land use determination. The results show, that the phenological stages of the cultivars are the main factors influencing the separability of agricultural classes and therefore determining the accuracies of the methods applied.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
