Abstract

Objectives: • Evaluate ALI sensor relative to Landsat TM data in terms of accurate classification of specific types of land cover and land use in central and southern Belize. • Analyze the capability of ALI sensor to determine extent and rate of deforestation through GIS-assisted spatial and temporal analyses of classified imagery. • Classify spectral data using both existing statistical methods and new contextual and multisensor algorithms currently developed at The University of Texas at Austin for multispectral and hyperspectral data.
