Abstract

The second-generation earth observation satellites of the Landsat programme carry the Thematic Mapper sensor with improved spatial and spectral resolution. The feasibility of the Thematic Mapper for forest classification in Flanders is investigated. Due to the unfortunate recording time of the available test image (1 November), the described results have to be considered as provisional. Two test zones, representative of the small-scale forest situation in Flanders, are selected as study sites. A supervised classification scheme is adopted, with special emphasis on the assessment of classification accuracy on different levels of detail : forest/non-forest, coniferous/deciduous, species and age classes. - (Authors)
