内容 研究概要:Land resource and environmental decision makers require quantitative information on the spatial distribution of vegetation types and their condition, and changes in these over time. Such vegetation mapping and monitoring is often required to be undertaken quickly. Remotely-sensed satellite imagery, in conjunction with other data sources, have been used to satisfy this need. This paper describes the uses of satellite imagery by reference to three regional mapping projects in New Zealand. The first project describes the use of Landsat TM imagery to map forest, scrub, pastural and cropping vegetation types. The second project concerns the innovative use of SPOT imagery, colour infrared aerial photography and ground observations to map percent vegetation cover for a degraded rangeland. The remaining project combines NOAA AVHRR imagery with daily dairy farm production data, as a means of monitoring sustainability and productivity of pastoral land use.
