Description:
Abstract:
The map is a composite image of spectral bands 3 (630-690 nanometers, red), 4 (775-900 nanometers, near-infrared), and 5 (1,550-1750 nanometers, middle-infrared) and the new panchromatic band (520-900, green to near-infrared) acquired by the Landsat 7 enhanced thematic mapper (ETM) sensor on January 27, 2000.
Purpose:
The objective of the project was to develop and apply innovative remote sensing and geographic information system techniques to map the distribution of vegetation, vegetation characteristics, and related hydrologic variables through space and time. The mapping and description of vegetation characteristics and their variations are necessary to accurately simulate surface hydrology and other surface processes in South Florida and to monitor land surface changes. As part of this research, data from many airborne and satellite imaging systems have been georeferenced and processed to facilitate data fusion and analysis. This image map was created using image fusion techniques developed as part of this project.
Supplemental_Information:
Some versions of the map are zipped due to the large size of the files. There are two different scanning resolutions for the map - 72 DPI (screen resolution) and 300 DPI (for high-quality printing).

Process_Description:
The satellite images (Path 16, Row 42) were recorded January 27, 2000, by the enhanced thematic mapper (ETM) sensor on the Landsat 7 satellite which records 7 multispectral bands and one panchromatic channel. This image map includes spectral bands 3 (630-690 nanometers, red), 4 (775-900 nanometers, near-infrared), and 5 (1,550-1,750 nanometers, middle-infrared) and the new panchromatic band (520-900 nanometers, green to near-infrared). The spatial resolution of the input data is 30 m by 30 m for the multispectral bands and 15 m by 15 m for the panchromatic band. The imagery was geocorrected using ground control points identified on the USGS digital orthophoto quadrangles and on the panchromatic data. The panchromatic data were resampled to 7.5 m by 7.5 m resolution and enhanced by filtering (101 by 101 filter with 75-percent add-back) and tone stretching. Then, the spatial information in the panchromatic data was combined with the color information of the multispectral data through a wavelet transform-based image fusion technique (Lemeshewsky, 1999). This data fusion process attempts to preserve the spectral fidelity while sharpening the spatial resolution. The tones output from this process were further enhanced through histogram evaluation and contrast stretching. Panchromatic enhanced multispectral bands 5, 4, and 3 are shown in red, green and blue respectively on the image map. This process allows the image map to meet National Map Accuracy Standards for 1:100,000-scale maps. The combination of a number of surface characteristics, such as vegetation type, vegetation density, soil water depth, and periphyton (algae and bacteria) dictates the amount and composition of light reflected to the satellite sensor and, therefore, the brightness, texture, and color shown in the image. Image subsets illustrate some of the common surface cover types using additions to floral assemblages suggested by Sunderson (1994). Where appropriate, water conditions at the time of imaging and soil type based on the county soil surveys are also noted.
