Research overview:
The objective of this study is to develop the methodology of mapping and monitoring land cover of large area using remote sensing techniques. To pursue this objective, the following studies are carried out. (1) Development of global land cover ground truth database (2) Development of methodology to extract land cover information from multi-sensor time-series satellite data. By this study, reliable global land cover data will be developed and It will be utilized for global change studies. Furthermore global land cover change information every year will be used for environmental policies.
