Estimation of urban vegetation abundance by spectral mixture analysis

  title={Estimation of urban vegetation abundance by spectral mixture analysis},
  author={C. Small and Lamont-Doherty},
The spatio-temporal distribution of vegetation is a fundamental component of the urban environment that can be quanti® ed using multispectral imagery. However, spectral heterogeneity at scales comparable to sensor resolution limits the utility of conventional hard classi® cation methods with multispectral re ̄ ectance data in urban areas. Spectral mixture models may provide a physically based solution to the problem of spectral heterogeneity. The objective of this study is to examine the… CONTINUE READING
