25 November 1986 Significance Of TM Data As A Tool To Support Regional Planning Activities
Author Affiliations +
Landsat MSS data (and formerly ERTS) have initialized an euphoric boom to obtain excellent and specific information for the use in regional planning and environmental tasks. Nevertheless, in many cases those expectations have been proven to be overemphasized if one was faced with the concrete problems in this field of application. With some of the first results of a pilot project in southern Bavaria (F.R.G.) using TM-data, we are now able to support the expectation of providing very detailed and geometric accurate planning base data. An object-oriented presentation of spectral features for micro-climatic investigations, hydrological sealing, land use, and indicators in the vitality of vegetation canopies enables us to state a high potential for much more differentiated land information analysis. In this context, it should be pointed not only to the high-resolution capabilities but especially to the properties in the nir and swir channels of TM.
