ASSIGNMENTRemote Sensing Technology 1(SGS 1633)Discuss the applications of the following satellite data,
(a)
Landsat Thematic Mapper(b)SPOT HRV
Landsat TM is the series of satellite that is well-known satellite for remotesensing and earth monitoring. Due to its band, we can differentiate theusage of each band.
BAND 1
–for soil/vegetation discrimation, bathymetry/coastal mapping,cultural/urban featureidentification.
BAND 2
–for green vegetation mapping by measuring reflectance peak,cultural/urban featureidentification.
BAND 3
–for differentiate between vegetated and non vegetated area, plantspeciesdiscrimination (plant chlorophyll absorption), cultural/urban featureidentification
BAND 4
–identification of plant/vegetation types, health and biomass content,water body delineation, soil moisture
BAND 5
–Sensitive to moisture in soil and vegetation, discriminating snow, andcloud-coveredareas.
BAND 6
–Vegetation stress and soil moisture discrimination related to thermalradiation,thermal mapping.
BAND 7
–Discrimination of mineral and rock types, sensitive to vegetation moisturecontent.
 There are many application of Landsat TM satellite data such as forenvironmental monitoring applications of low spatial resolution imageswhere this satellite data help in doing vegetation assessment. By combiningcertain band, you can differentiate the type of plant easier by usingNDVI(Normalised Difference Vegetation Index).It is also used in topographic mapping and land cover mapping. Thetechnique of false colour helping the researcher to easily study of land covereasily. False colour combination of bands 3(visible red), 4(near infrared) and5(mid infrared) can also study health of vegetation. Landsat TM also useful indetecting the sea-surface temperature, algal blooms, estuarine sedimentplumes, oil spill and other pollutant contamination plumes compared to SPOT
