Validation with Satellite Data

  • Armando Marino
Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)


The previous chapter was focused on validation with airborne data, while the current is specifically assigned to satellite data. This separation was beneficial due to some differences between airborne and satellite data. Although the data processing is substantially the same, there are significant practical differences making satellite detection more challenging.
