Geostatistics and remote sensing

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



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
