Usefulness of ERTS-1 satellite imagery as a data-gathering tool by resource managers in the Bureau of Land ManagementERTS-1 satellite imagery can be an effective data-gathering tool for resource managers. Techniques are developed which allow managers to visually analyze simulated color infrared composite images to map perennial and ephemeral (annual) plant communities. Tentative results indicate that ephemeral plant growth and development and potential to produce forage can be monitored.
