    Description

    Global and regional assessaents require timely information on landscape level status (e.g., areal extent of different ecosystems) and processes (e.g., changes in land use and land cover). To measure and understand these processes at the regional level, and model their impacts, remote sensing is often necessary. However, processing massive volumes of remotely sensing data can be infeasible if high resolution data are required for very large regions. Remote sensing of sample plots, rather than a census of the entire area, can solve certain problems. Statistical aspects of remote sensing for large plots are described, concentrating on methods needed to produce sample estimates, combine time series of ancillary estimates from other sources, calibrate for misclassification bias, and combine remotely sensed data with model predictions. These methods might improve spatial and temporal accuracy, and test our understanding of processes that are captured in landscape level models.
