Analysis of LANDSAT-4 TM Data for Lithologic and Image Mapping PurposeLithologic mapping techniques using the near infrared bands of the Thematic Mapper onboard the LANDSAT 4 satellite are investigated. These methods are coupled with digital masking to test the capability of mapping geologic materials. Data are examined under medium to low Sun angle illumination conditions to determine the detection limits of materials with absorption features. Several detection anomalies are observed and explained.
