    'Staff publications' is the digital repository of Wageningen University & Research

    'Staff publications' contains references to publications authored by Wageningen University staff from 1976 onward.

    Publications authored by the staff of the Research Institutes are available from 1995 onwards.

    Full text documents are added when available. The database is updated daily and currently holds about 240,000 items, of which 72,000 in open access.

    We have a manual that explains all the features

Abstract The multispectral and multitemporal classification approach of AVHRR data on specific dates was studied for land cover mapping on a continental scale. Major conclusions are: decision keys must be developed that exploit both the use of multitemporal composites and multispectral data; the current classification distinguishes only main land cover types; due to mixed pixels the content of an AVHRR-derived land cover class can differ substantially over Europe. The main advantage of remote sensing over statistical surveys is its high spatial detail and consistent quality in land cover; the main disadvantage is the absence of specific classes.
