CORINE Land Cover is an Europeanwide land cover and land use classification. The CORINE2000 classification of Finland is based on automated interpretation of satellite images and data integration with existing digital map data. Satellite images are used in estimation of continuous variables describing vegetation type and coverage, as well as in updating map(More)
CORINE Land Cover is an Europeanwide land cover and land use classification which is based in most countries on visual interpretation of satellite images. The new CORINE2000 classification of Finland is based automated interpretation of satellite images and data integration with existing digital map data. Satellite images are used in estimation of(More)
This paper studies the applicability of ERS-1 and JERS SAR-images to land-use classification. Different factors affecting classification accuracy like environmental conditions of study area, speckle filtering, spatial averaging, texture measures and different ways to use temporal images are discussed. Classification experiment employing three principal(More)
The aim of this study was to make CORINE 2000 classification better in Northern Finland by making the classes of natural areas more separable using optical remote sensing images and decision based data fusion methods. Phenological time-series derived from MODIS images and ETM-image mosaic were classified using Maximum Likelihood classifier. Classification(More)
