Using Satellite Imagery to Locate Arundo
Locating arundo vegetation is the first step towards removing it, which would conserve large amounts of ground water. Locating it with satellite imagery is less expensive than with aerial photography.
Need and Benefit
The spectral signature of arundo has been looked at but not definitively measured in hyperspectral satellite data. By defining a hyperspectral signature, saltcedar locations and areas could be extracted from satellite data, locating areas to be removed more cheaply than by using aerial photography.
