AUTOMATIC THEMATIC MAPPING IN THE EROS PROGRAM

MANY OF THE USERS OF REMOTE-SENSED DATA MUST DEPEND ON THEME-EXTRACTION TECHNIQUES FOR THE PROPER ANALYSIS OF A PARTICULAR PHENOMENON. THE EARTH RESOURCES OBSERVATION SYSTEMS (EROS) PROGRAM OF THE USGS IS DEVELOPING A THEMATIC MAPPING SYSTEM WHICH WILL PRODUCE BINARY GRAPHIC OVERLAYS OF SELECTED PHENOMENON. IN SERVING THE NEEDS OF A WIDE SPECTRUM OF USERS, THE CAPABILITY OF EXTRACTING FOUR THEMES IS BEING DEVELOPED - OPEN WATER, SNOW AND ICE, REFLECTIVE IR VEGETATION, AND THE MASSED WORKS OF MAN. /AUTHOR/
