—This study measures the effect of lossy image compression on the digital classification of crops and forest areas. A hybrid classification method using satellite images and other variables has been used. The results contribute interesting new data on the influence of compression on the quality of the produced cartography, both from a " by pixel "(More)
The Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS) Clearinghouse is part of the GEOSS Common Infrastructure (GCI) that supports the discovery of the data made available by the Group on Earth Observations (GEO) members and participant organizations in GEOSS. It also acts as a unified metadata catalogue that stores complete metadata records, not only(More)
—Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Remote Sensing (RS) applications are becoming an important issue for the territorial management, governmental and research projects, and for many fields of our society. A characteristic of such applications is the displaying of successive layers of information that, in some cases, may overlap areas of the displayed(More)
Classification of hyperspectral images is paramount to an increasing number of user applications. With the advent of more powerful technology, sensed images demand for larger requirements in computational and memory capabilities, which has led to devise compression techniques to alleviate the transmission and storage necessities. Classification of(More)
This study deals with the effects of lossy image compression in the visual analysis of remotely sensed images. The experiments consider two factors with interaction: the type of landscape and the degree of lossy compression. Three landscapes and two areas for each landscape (with different homogeneity) have been selected. For every of the six study area,(More)
The efficient transmission of large resolution images is a key aspect in many applications to minimize the transmission costs and to enhance the browsing experience. Among the currently available standards for the coding and transmission of imagery, JPEG2000 excels for its superior coding performance and advanced capabilities. The JPEG2000 Interactive(More)
