This plan outlines the map products to be generated from Landsat imagery, airborne multispectral scanner imagery, and aerial photography of a test site on the Texas coast. The objectives of producing these maps are:

To determine the methodology necessary for developing each type of product. To designate the size, scale, level of detail, and final format of each map within an initial phase of development of remote sensing products. To designate specifications for the generation of equivalent products from aerial photography to be used in comparison evaluations. The map products and data analysis procedures described here are based on:

Objectives outlined in the Applications System Verification and Transfer (ASVT) Project Plan (McCulloch and McKain, 1978). State agency coastal information needs and listings of possible products developed in conjunction with the User Advisory Group. The Remote Sensing Information Subsystem (RSIS) Level I Design and Design Review documents. As such, the descriptions contained herein are primarily conceptual and are derived from only limited hands-on experience with Landsat imagery and digital image processing hardware and software. Present time schedules call for the software required for full analysis of data over the Coastal Test Site to be available in early 1981.
