Abstract

The powerful sinergy between geostatistics and remote sensing went unrealized until the 1980s. Today geostatistics are used to explore and describe spatial variation in remotely sensed and ground data; to design optimum sampling schemes for image data and ground data; and to increase the accuracy with wich remotely sensed data can be used to classify land cover or estimate continuous variables. This article introduces these applications and uses 2 examples to highlight characteristics that are common to them all. Conclusion with a discussion of conditional simulation as a novel geostatistical technique for use in remote sensing
