HIGH-ALTITUDE VERSES LANDSAT IMAGERY FOR DIGITAL CROP IDENTIFICATION

Multidate crop identification using microdensitometer scanned color infrared high-altitude photography (original scale 1:120,000) and Landsat digital data was conducted for a 140 sq km study area in Kern County, California. The purpose of this analysis was not to achieve maximum crop identification accuracy per se, but to comparatively evaluate the utility of the two image formats for digital crop identification. Preliminary results indicate that the Landsat digital approach is superior to analysis of digitized high-altitude photography. Vignetting in the high-altitude photography dataset caused serious signature extension problems. /Author/
