7 Application of Subpixel Mapping Technology in Remote Sensing Imaging

DOI: 10.1201/9781003279082-7


The use of subpixel mapping technology can obtain more accurate distribution information of land cover classes from remote sensing imaging. The demand for accurate distribution information is increasing in the military and civilian fields. The subpixel mapping technology has been successfully applied to thematic mapping of land cover classes, extraction of river and lake boundaries, detection of coastlines, calculation of the landscape index, and change detection of land cover classes [12]. In addition, subpixel mapping technology has been widely used in crop changes, forest coverage detection, drinking water quality investigation, ...
