Spring Small Grains Area Estimation
Author and Affiliation:
Palmer, W. F.(Lockheed Engineering & Management Services Co., Inc.)
Mohler, R. J.(Lockheed Engineering & Management Services Co., Inc.)
Abstract: SSG3 automatically estimates acreage of spring small grains from Landsat data. Report describes development and testing of a computerized technique for using Landsat multispectral scanner (MSS) data to estimate acreage of spring small grains (wheat, barley, and oats). Application of technique to analysis of four years of data from United States and Canada yielded estimates of accuracy comparable to those obtained through procedures that rely on trained analysis.
