LAND-USE CLASSIFICATION UTILIZING INFRARED SCANNING IMAGERY

In USGC Circular 671 (1972), Anderson et al. proposed a land-use classification system to be employed with remotely sensed aerial imagery. The system is tested here in a land-use study of a West Texas city reservoir. In the process, capabilities and utility of 8-to-14 micrometre infrared linescan imagery are examined. It is determined that the enhanced resolution capabilities of low-altitude infrared linescan for some targets render some of the Circular 671 categories too broad for large-scale imagery interpretation. Nonetheless, the special properties of low-altitude thermal infrared imagery in combination with the Circular 671 classification system form a research tool of great versatility in performance of thermatic land-use surveys.
