The use of local knowledge in land use/land cover mapping from satellite images


, : The use of local knowledge in land use/land cover mapping from satellite images. ITC Journal ( 4): 349-358

Producing land cover maps from digital images is expensive, and data acquisition (including fieldwork) accounts for as much as 90% of the total cost of producing these maps. Fieldwork can be reduced by using local knowledge to classify land cover. Information obtained from remotely sensed images is described. The relationship between visible objects and the required information is considered. Present methods based on visual interpretation and digital classification are described.

Objective. Loss of expression of apoptotic regulatory proteins in many neoplasias might result in defective or delayed apoptosis, thus facilitating tumor growth or survival. We analyzed here, the basal expression of precursors of apoptotic Caspase...
