Microwave sensors are especially appropriate instruments, as they allow the differentiation of inundated from non-inundated areas, regardless of levels of solar illumination or frequency of cloud cover in regions experiencing substantial rainy seasons. In the current study we present the(More)
We present a novel and innovative automated processing environment for the derivation of land cover (LC) and land use (LU) information. This processing framework named TWOPAC (TWinned Object and Pixel based Automated classification Chain) enables the standardized, independent, user-friendly, and comparable derivation of LC and LU information, with minimized(More)
Efficient and sustainable Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) requires computer based Decision Support Systems (DSS) supporting operational management and strategic policy-making and planning. Spatial data and related technologies provide information on abiotic, biotic and socioeconomic conditions which are crucial for effective collaborative(More)
