Meris Based Land Cover Classification with Self-organizing Maps : Preliminary Results

  title={Meris Based Land Cover Classification with Self-organizing Maps : Preliminary Results},
  author={Hugo Carr{\~a}o and Lu{\'i}s Cap{\~a}o and Fernando Baç{\~a}o and Mario Caetano},
With the recent launch of MERIS, a wide range of new possibilities for the periodic land cover characterization at regional scale is available. This sensor offers a combination of innovative features, such as high spectral and temporal resolutions, wide geographical coverage and improved atmospheric correction. We believe that the exploitation of data obtained by this new sensor fills previous technological gaps, improving automatic land cover classes’ discrimination. At the same time, the… CONTINUE READING
