ERTS - 1 DATA FOR LAND-USE MAPPING AND WATER QUALITY

ERTS - 1 DATA FOER MARKANVAENDNINGSTARTERING OCH VATTENUNDERSOEKNING

The rich ERTS data received from Southern Scandinavia provides material to study some current problems concerning environmental quality. The material used is mss imagery and colour composites of the test areas in southern Sweden and adjoining water areas (the Baltic, the Oresund and the Kattegat) selected for the ERTS-1 experiments. The MSS images of the different bands are compared under the magnification of the interpretoskop (Zeiss Jena). Densitometric analysis is performed in schnellpothometer (Zeiss Jena) and for the cartographic work an Aviograph Wild B 8 S is used. At the request of planners the utility of ERTS imagery for land-use inventory was studied. The land-use map constructed gives a very detailed differentation (18 categories) of the coastal area surveyed. The possible identification of gravel-pits has been examined and a survey map of larger pits has been drawn for Scania, southern Sweden. /TRRL/
