The objective of this investigation is to assess the feasibility of using Landsat MSS (multispectral scanner) data to identify and map cover types for rangeland, and to determine comparative condition of the ecotypes. A supporting objective is to assess the utility of various forms of aerial photography in the process.

Jaynes, Mapping Shoreline Fluctuations with Digital Landsat Data, Great Salt Lake, Utah, Assessment of Landsat for rangeland mapping. The traditional means of monitoring rangelands are neither statistically reliable nor economically feasible.

The traditional approaches used locally are difficult to scale upward. Unique properties of landscapes only emerge as land is looked at with coarser scales (West ).

The following project proposes fresh approaches utilizing remote sensing imagery in a regional context to monitoring. Mapping the World with Landsat.

• Speeding around the Earth at 16, mph (27, kph), two Landsat satellites are quietly, expertly watching and recording changes in Earth’s lands from space.

They are gathering data for people to make maps–all kinds of wonderful maps–of our cities growing, rivers flooding, lava flowing. Feb 1, • Landsat Monitors Chesapeake Bay Change. Feb 1, • Landsat is a critical and invaluable tool for characterizing the landscape and mapping it over time. Landsat data provides a baseline of observations for science about how human activities on the land affect water quality, affect wildlife habitat, affect air quality.

File Size: 1MB. and June Landsat data were purchased. The objective of this study was to use Landsat spectral maps to assist the BLM in the preparation of a semi-detailed soil survey of ahectare area.

The out­ put was produced prior to the field mapping and was to be used as an integral part of. itoring and characterizing rangeland vegetation. Moderate spatial resolution data collected by Landsat and other satellites provide a temporal resolution and economy not matched by aerial or ground methods.

Several studies have demonstrated the utility of Landsat data for mapping rangeland vegetation (Todd. Evaluation of ETM+ Gap-filled SLC-Off Data for Geologic Mapping in Semi-Arid Terrain Prepared by G. Bryan Bailey, USGS, July USGS EROS Data Center, Sioux Falls, SD Introduction The value of Landsat TM and ETM+ data as tools for geologic mapping in semi-arid terrain has been demonstrated over the years by many investigators.

Knowing the location and extent of wetland resources is the first step to implementing appropriate conservation and management strategies. Today, spatial datasets are fundamental research tools and though wetland spatial data are available now at the state scale in Utah, much of the data are dated and do not accurately represent existing wetland resources.

Mapping vegetation in a heterogeneous mountain rangeland using Landsat data: an alternative method to define and classify land-cover units Article in Remote Sensing of Environment 92(1)   Mapping water use based on Landsat satellite data has demonstrated immense potential at local and regional scales, and will soon become the basis for monitoring and assessing water use across the nation.
