Estimation of the Sugar Cane Cultivated Area from LANDSAT Images Using the Two Phase Sampling Method,
INSTITUTO DE PESQUISAS ESPACIAIS SAO JOSE DOS CAMPOS (BRAZIL)
Pagination or Media Count:
A two phase sampling method and the optimal sampling segment dimensions are developed for the estimation of the sugar cane cultivated area. This technique employs visual interpretations of LANDSAT images and panchromatic aerial photographs considered as the ground truth. The estimates, as a mean value of 100 simulated samples, represent 99.3 of the true value with a CV of approximately 1 the relative efficiency of the two phase design was 157 when compared with a one phase aerial photographs sample.
