Introduction

Introduction

  • Dry meadows and pastures in Switzerland are species-rich habitats resulting from a traditional agricultural land use.

  • 40% of plant and over 50% of animal species present on dry meadows are classified as endangered

  • 90% of dry grasslands have been transformed to other land cover types

  • TWW Project "Dry Grassland in Switzerland"(Trockenwiesen und –weiden,1995)

  • Creation of a federal inventory so ecologically valuable grasslands could be given an increased protection by law.


General objective

General Objective

  • To develop, apply, and test different methods based on remote sensing datasets and techniques for identification and monitoring of dry meadows and pastures in Switzerland

  • Main project parts:

    Part A:Field Spectrometry-(Plot to Field)

    Part B:Imaging Spectrometry-(Field to Region)

    Part C:Multitemporal Landsat TM approach-(Region to

    Landscape)


General objective1

General Objective

  • Examine the potential of using the seasonal variability in spectral

    reflectance for discriminating dry meadows and pastures.

  • Identify the best spectral wavelengths to discriminating grasslands

    of different type. Which are the spectral wavelengths with statistical

    significant differences?

  • Identify the optimal time or times during the growing season

    for discriminating and classifying different types of grasslands.

Continuum removal i

Continuum Removal I

  • It standardizes reflectance spectra to allow comparison of absorption features.

  • Spectral absorption-depth method for identifying chlorophyll, water, cellulose, lignin image spectral features

  • Minimization of factors like atmospheric absorption, soil exposure, other absorbers in the leaf (Kruse et al. 1985; Clark et al. 1987; Kruse et al. 1993a).

  • A continuum is formed by fitting straight line segments between the maxima of the spectral curve

Statistical Analysis I

  • Statistical significance of spectral response was tested with the Mann-Whitney U Test (Wilcox test) for a p<0.01 for each wavelength of each field per for recording day.

  • Analysis was done between individual fields and between each grassland type. (for every individual day)

  • Continuum removed spectra and the original recordings were tested.

  • Classification and Regression Tree Analysis (C&RT) on statistically significant wavelength for selection of wavelengths.

  • Repeated (15x) 10-fold cross validation to optimize the pruning of the tree

  • Feature space analysis using the Jeffries-Matusita distance.

Statistical Analysis II

Classification and Regression Trees (C&RT)

  • Results presented on a tree are easily summarized and interpreted.

  • Flexible in handling different response data types and a big number of explanatory variables.

  • Ease and robustness of construction.

  • Tree methods are nonparametric and nonlinear

  • For every day all possible field combination are checked for statistical significance per wavelength.

  • E.g.: Recording day with 6 fields (AE,AEMB1,AEMB2,MB1,MB2,MB3)

    Possible combinations : 15

    Significance tests: 15 combinations x 2000 Wavelengths (variables)

Discussion

  • Increased spectral resolution of hyperspectral recordings provide great opportunities for discriminating grassland types.

  • Recordings during the growing seasongive a better understanding of the spectral differences between grassland types and increase the possibilities for successful discrimination and classification.

  • Continuum removed spectra gave a smaller number of significant wavelengths but overall better class-separability throughout the season.

  • C&RT proved to be a powerful statistical approach for reducing the dimensionality of hyperspectral data and for optimizing the selection of wavelengths that maximized the class separability .

  • Processing of the data, statistical analysis and C&RT analysis was all done in the statistical packageR, making it easily reproducible and adjustable.

  • Trees can be used for interactive exploration and for description and prediction of patterns and processes. Advantages of trees include:

  • (1) the flexibility to handle a broad range of response types, including numeric, categorical, ratings, and survival data; (2) invariance to monotonic transformations of the explanatory variables;

  • (3) ease and robustness of construction;

  • (4) ease of interpretation;

  • (5) the ability to handle missing values in both response and explanatory variables.

  • Thus, trees complement or represent an alternative to many traditional statistical techniques, including multiple regression, analysis of variance, logistic regression, log-linear models, linear discriminant analysis, and survival models.

Discussion-Further steps

  • Separability analysis: Euclidean ,Jeffries-Matusita, Bhattacharyya distance

  • Perform CART tree analysis using the statistically significant spectral bands.

  • Upscaling the results of the analysis to HyMap sensor .(5m spatial resolution,128bands spectral resolution).
