Paper Abstract

Simulated SPOT 4 data are assessed in environmentally sensitive wetland and regional agro- environmental policy monitoring. SPOT 4 was simulated via the fusion of SPOT XS and Landsat TM 5 SWIR bands. Using SERTIT's Region-Alsace GIS a result evaluation was performed on color composites, specific indices, tasseled cap (TM), PCA and Gram-Schmidt (SPOT4) indices calculations. The future SPOT 4 with its new MIR band and with less data provides more pertinent information than the existing Landsat TM and also than SPOT 3, systems on wetland environmental monitoring. This is particularly so when considering future cadastral level applications and its better spatial resolution.
