Dataset Information

Additional Information

This data set contains training and testing data from a remote sensing study which mapped different forest types based on their spectral characteristics at visible-to-near infrared wavelengths, using ASTER satellite imagery. The output (forest type map) can be used to identify and/or quantify the ecosystem services (e.g. carbon storage, erosion protection) provided by the forest.

Has Missing Values?

No

Variable Information

Class: 's' ('Sugi' forest), 'h' ('Hinoki' forest), 'd' ('Mixed deciduous' forest), 'o' ('Other' non-forest land) b1 - b9: ASTER image bands containing spectral information in the green, red, and near infrared wavelengths for three dates (Sept. 26, 2010; March 19, 2011; May 08, 2011. pred_minus_obs_S_b1 - pred_minus_obs_S_b9: Predicted spectral values (based on spatial interpolation) minus actual spectral values for the 's' class (b1-b9). pred_minus_obs_H_b1 - pred_minus_obs_H_b9: Predicted spectral values (based on spatial interpolation) minus actual spectral values for the 'h' class (b1-b9).
