Most satellites for environmental monitoring point ground targets from a perpendicular position to the terrain, also known as nadir. The CHRIS/PROBA platform provides four extra angles of observation, plus nadir pointing: -55°, -36°, 0°, +36°, and +55°. The purpose of this study is to investigate the best season (wet or dry season) and angle of observation to map tropical dry forest succession in Brazil. Nonparametric decision trees were used to build up classification maps based on principal… CONTINUE READING
