HiWATER: Land cover product in the middle reaches of the Heihe River Basin (29 June, 2012) Chinese Version

On 29 June 2012, CASI sensor carried by the Harbin Y-12 aircraft was used in a visible near Infrared hyperspectral airborne remote sensing experiment, which is located in the observation experimental area (30×30 km). The land cover pattern product in the middle reaches of the Heihe River Basin were obtained at a spatial resolution of 1 m, using CASI aerial data with high spatial and spectral resolution.A hierarchical classification structure integrated by pixel-based classification and object-based classification is used to obtain production.According to surveyed reference data about land cover and visual interpretation from high resolution imagery,the accuracy of the classification result of land cover was evaluated,and the result showed that overall accuracy was 84.61 %,Kappa coefficient was 0.8262.
