|Title:||Accuracy comparison of Quickbird, Landsat TM and SPOT 5 imagery for 'Lantana camara' mapping||Contributor(s):||Taylor, Subhashni (author) ; Kumar, Lalit (author) ; Reid, Nick (author)||Publication Date:||2011||DOI:||10.1080/14498596.2011.623345||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/9638||Abstract:||The distribution of an invasive species, 'Lantana camara' L., was mapped using Landsat TM, SPOT 5 and Quickbird imagery with the maximum likelihood supervised classification method. The cost-effectiveness of the three different kinds of imagery was also evaluated. Landsat TM multi-spectral (MS) imagery provided an overall accuracy of 85.1 percent and a kappa coefficient of 0.78, while SPOT 5 imagery gave an overall accuracy of 84.9 percent and a kappa value of 0.77. Landsat TM was suitable for detecting dense infestations of lantana. Quickbird showed an overall accuracy of 84 percent and a kappa coefficient of 0.76. Spectral resolution and band position were more important than spatial resolution in classifying lantana accurately and the most cost-effective option was provided by Landsat TM with no significant difference in overall accuracies between the three types of imagery.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Journal of Spatial Science, 56(2), p. 241-252||Publisher:||Taylor & Francis Asia Pacific||Place of Publication:||Singapore||ISSN:||1449-8596
