Paper Abstract

Using Terra/MODIS data of 2001, land cover classifications are studied in Kii peninsula based on pattern decomposition method (PDM). The pattern decomposition method is an analysis method developed in multi-dimensional reflectance space and is suitable for mixing analysis and sensor independent analysis. In this method, a digital number in multi-spectral satellite data is expressed by the combination of three standard spectral patterns multiplied by three decomposition coefficients. Use these three coefficients and vegetation index based on PDM (VIPD), land objects are classified and it is found that 76.8% of Kii peninsula is vegetation and is nearly same results as the values obtained using landsat/TM data of 1995. Our final goal of this study is to estimate net primary production (NPP) of vegetation in Kii peninsula using the results of land cover classification and to study annual change of land cover and NPP.
