Title: Urban Tree Canopy--Remote Sensing Lesson
Url: http://gistr3.delmar.edu/igett/LU_Hoff.html
Publisher: Integrated Geospatial Education and Technology Training Project (iGETT)
Description: American Forests recommends that urban areas have a 40% tree canopy to help reduce air temperatures and improve air quality. Making that determination can be a painstaking process. Remotely-sensed imagery can automate the process and give reasonable approximations of tree canopy coverage. The use of band ratios and histogram statistics allows the student to begin this process. The topic allows many refinements to be added in terms of vegetation indices as an extension to the lesson. Materials for this lesson may be downloaded in PDF and ZIP format.
