    Utility of Landsat Thematic data for mapping site productivity in tropical moist forests

    Export to Mendeley

    Regression analysis was used to develop a relationship between Landsat 5 Thematic Mapper data and site quality of permanent sample plots. The thermal band (6) produced misleading results, but the ratio of band 4 an 5 showed promise when combined with geological information. Best results were obtained when regression analysis was restricted to ensure that at least one each of the visible (1 to 3), mid-infrared (5 and 7) and near-infrared (4) bands were included. Results suggest that Landsat TM may ne useful for mapping site quality in tropical moist forest in north Queensland. Interpolation of site productivity within a single pass seems feasible, but attempts to extrapolate results to other passes or to imagery obtained on different dates may be unreliable.

    Description

    Title : Utility of Landsat Thematic data for mapping site productivity in tropical moist forests
    Author(s) : Jerome K Vanclay, Robert A Preston
    Abstract : Regression analysis was used to develop a relationship between Landsat 5 Thematic Mapper data and site quality of permanent sample plots. The thermal band (6) produced misleading results, but the ratio of band 4 an 5 showed promise when combined with geological information. Best results were obtained when regression analysis was restricted to ensure that at least one each of the visible (1 to 3), mid-infrared (5 and 7) and near-infrared (4) bands were included. Results suggest that Landsat TM may ne useful for mapping site quality in tropical moist forest in north Queensland. Interpolation of site productivity within a single pass seems feasible, but attempts to extrapolate results to other passes or to imagery obtained on different dates may be unreliable.
