This plan outlines the map products to be generated from Landsat imagery, airborne multispectral scanner imagery, and aerial photography of test sites in the High Plains of the Texas Panhandle and in Trans-Pecos Texas. 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. 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 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. The descriptions contained herein are primarily conceptual and are derived from limited hands-on experience with Landsat imagery and digital image processing hardware and software. Analysis of the High Plains region will make maximum use of experience gained in the coastal test site using ISOCLS for unsupervised classification of land cover/land use. The image enhancement techniques to be used for geologic applications in the Trans-Pecos region have not previously been applied as part of RSIS.
