Paper Abstract

An IKONOS image was used to examine the spatial complexity of the band spectra of remote sensing. Triangular prism method and double blanket method were applied to calculate the fractal dimensions of all bands for each land cover type. The results show the image texture characteristics of the images by bands and land cover types. As the conclusions, the fractal dimensions of all bands of each land type range between 2.0 and 3.0. But different type sub-images show different complexities, thus different dimensions. Dimension values reflect spectral characters and spatial characters of sub-images. Thus, it is believed that the measurement and analysis of land cover can be more effectively and efficiently realized using fractal characterization of high spatial and spectral resolution remote sensing data.
