Using the ERDAS IMAGINE 8.7 software package, a series of operations were performed for classification of land cover features in the Stennis Space Center (SSC) Image.
Among the three images provided of SSC, the satellite image of SSC taken on February 19, 2004 was selected. In this image, the coniferous trees appear dark red due to the presence of chlorophyll. The deciduous trees appear grey and light green due to shedding of leaves. Satellite images taken in summer were not available. The reflectance from trees is different in Summer and Winter due to the leaves.
