Paper Abstract

In order to study land cover classification and natural environment, we must analyze vegetation cover states of the local scale in which we can know the subject in detail, as well as and the global scale. Therefore, we need to analyze various satellite data sets which are measured with different wavelengths region and different number of bands. However, it is difficult to compare analysis results obtained using such data sets. By the universal pattern decomposition method (UPDM), which is sensor independent analysis method, we examined vegetation coverage of a pixel on data sets measured different wavelength range and different resolution which is acquired at the same place and time. In this study, in order to develop a generalization rule of vegetation coverage, we examine vegetation coverage of a pixel on 1-kilometer resolution data sets using results obtained by analyzing 250-m resolution data sets which are acquired at the same place and time as the pixel of 1-kilometers'. We defined the rule of classifying into five levels of vegetation coverage using results of high resolution data sets analyzed by the UPDM. Using the results of the analysis, we calculate vegetation coverage of Kii peninsula area.
