SOME FINDINGS ON THE APPLICATIONS OF ERTS AND SKYLAB IMAGERY FOR METROPOLITAN LAND USE ANALYSIS

Work undertaken on a three-sensor land use data evaluation for a portion of the Phoenix area is reported. Analyses between land use data generated from 1970 high-altitude photography and that detectable from ERTS and Skylab, especially in terms of changes in land use indicate that ERTS and Skylab imagery can be used effectively to detect and identify areas of post-1970 land use change, especially those documenting urban expansion at the rural-urban fringe. Significant preliminary findings on the utility of ERTS and Skylab data for metropolitan land use analysis, substantiated by evaluations with 1970 and 1972 ground control land use data are reported.
