Landsat TM imagery is being used to monitor landcover change in a number of operational projects in Australia. Most recently, the Australian Greenhouse Office (AGO) has undertaken a project to provide historical monitoring of changes in woody vegetation across the continent. In order to map and monitor landcover changes in a consistent and comparable manner across broad areas, it is highly desirable to have a consistently calibrated numerical base. To this end, the AGO has supported the creation of a rectification and calibration base for Australia, using Landsat TM data; 369 Landsat 7 images from the period July 1999 to September 2000 were purchased from the Australian Centre for Remote Sensing (ACRES). This paper describes the processing and production of the calibration base from these images.
