WorldView-2 multispectral wavebands (8 wavebands; 427-908 nm spectral range; 2 m spatial resolution) were utilized to classify six commercial forest species (Eucalyptus grandis, Eucalyptus nitens, Eucalyptus smithii, Pinus patula, Pinus elliotii and Acacia mearnsii) in South Africa using the partial least squares discriminant analysis (PLS-DA) technique. Results indicate that the WorldView-2 imagery produced an overall accuracy of 85.42% and a kappa statistic value of 0.83, with individual… CONTINUE READING
