Paper Abstract

Low spatial resolution imagery is one of the important remote sensing data sources for remote sensing monitoring of a large scope and distribution of vegetation. There exist many mixed pixels in low spatial resolution image, which need an effective method to deal with them and to be improved the quality of classification images. In this paper, linear mixing model is used to unmix the time series of MODIS-NDVI data. The endmembers extraction is a key and necessity, which represents the spectral characteristics of the single pure land cover types. A new endmembers extraction algorithm based on the time series of MODIS-NDVI and TM sample data is presented in this paper.Using these methods, we evaluate the clarification results and find wheat distribution's region accuracy and pixel accuracy reach to 92.9% and 0.837 respectively, which are higher than the clarification result based on the endmembers from MODIS-NDVI pixel purity index analysis or from classifications of TM data. This shows that our endmembers extraction algorithm is available and effective, which help to improve monitoring accuracy of large scope and distribution of vegetation.
