COASTAL ZONE CLASSIFICATION FROM SATELLITE IMAGERY

Digital ERTS-1 MSS scanner data and SKYLAB-EREP photographs have been used in an attempt to inventory and monitor significant natural and man-made cover types in Delaware's coastal zone. Automatic classification of ERTS data yielded classification accuracies of over 80 percent for all categories tested. Visual interpretation of EREP Earth Terrain photographs distinguished a minimum of 10 categories with classification accuracies ranging from 75 percent to 99 percent. Noise problems prevented analysis of EREP-S192 scanner data. Most noise sources have been identified and filtered S192 tapes should soon be available, allowing application of automated classification techniques used on ERTS data. The spectral and spatial resolution of the SKYLAB-EREP S192 scanner should allow more detailed mapping of land cover while the repetitive coverage of ERTS is important for change detection. /Author/
