Changes in forest area along stream networks in an agricultural catchment of the Great Barrier Reef Lagoon

Jupiter, Stacy; Marion, Guy

Description

Scenes from the series of multispectral sensors on the Landsat satellites were used to map recent changes (between 1972 and 2004) in forest cover within and adjacent to stream networks of an intensively farmed region of the southern Great Barrier Reef catchment (Australia). Unsupervised ISODATA classifications of Tasseled-Cap transformed data (at 57 m ground resolution) mapped forest and cleared areas within 150 m of Pisoneer catchment waterways with 72.2% overall accuracy (Khat = 0.469), when...[Show more]
