On the combination of multitemporal satellite and field data for forest inventories

Peng S. (1987). On the combination of multitemporal satellite and field data for forest inventories. Acta Forestalia Fennica no. 200 article id 7647. https://doi.org/10.14214/aff.7647


The study concerns with the methodology and efficiency of integrating multitemporal satellite image data with permanent sample plots in a continuous forest inventory and compartment wise estimation. The generalized least squares estimation for the population, and the unsupervised stratification for compartments, are the main estimation methods employed. The experimental material is composed of real and simulated multitemporal images (Landsat TM) and field data. Precision analyses for the estimation and comparisons for a number of estimation and updating methods, as well as statistical options are given.
