  • The Amazon basin remains a major hotspot of tropical deforestation, presenting a clear need for timely, accurate and consistent data on forest cover change. We assessed the utility of a hybrid classification technique, iterative guided spectral class rejection (IGSCR), for accurately mapping Amazonian deforestation using annual imagery from the Landsat Thematic Mapper (TM) and Enhanced Thematic Mapper Plus (ETM+) from 1992 to 2002. The mean overall accuracy of the 11 annual classifications was… CONTINUE READING
