Abstract

This paper attempts to examine some of the bases for the dichotomy between users of computer aided interpretation and users of conventional air-photo interpretation techniques for studying LANDSAT Imagery. Differences between the two approaches are identified in terms of technological involvement, financial input,mathematical complexity and data quality. The characteristics of the two techniques are evaluated against three areas of implementation: the one-off investigation, global monitoring and temporal monitoring. Both techniques have their place, and the way ahead lies with judicious use of each.
