Abstract
Remote sensing is used by the Department of Environment, Climate change and Water (DECCW) for mapping and monitoring the extent of woody vegetation in the State of New South Wales (NSW). In the past DECCW has relied solely on Landsat imagery to provide for these requirements but the need to map woody vegetation change in landscapes such as open woodlands with scattered trees, grasslands, and highly modified areas, has demanded the use of higher resolution imagery. Since 2007, DECCW has been developing a program for statewide monitoring of woody vegetation using SPOT 5 imagery.The methods being used to map woody vegetation change have been adapted from the SLATS Landsat approach. They includes radiometric correction of SPOT 5 imagery,... (More)

Since 2007, DECCW has been developing a program for statewide monitoring of woody vegetation using SPOT 5 imagery.The methods being used to map woody vegetation change have been adapted from the SLATS Landsat approach. They includes radiometric correction of SPOT 5 imagery, cross-calibration of SPOT and Landsat Foliage Projective Cover (FPC) products, and development of a change index based on existing training data from Landsat monitoring. Vegetation change for the 2008–2009 period is currently being mapped using SPOT 5 imagery and these methods.The methods will be further refined by incorporating improved radiometric correction techniques and additional validation data as they become available.When a time series of SPOT 5 imagery is available higher resolution maps of woody vegetation extent and FPC will also be produced.
