Abstract: This report documents the application of an interactive Landsat classification procedure in South Louisiana. The procedure, discussed in Report 2 of this series, is an interim solution to the problem of mapping very large areas in terms of relatively crude categories in very short periods of time. The area selected for study was Baton Rouge and vicinity. This area includes a portion of the Mississippi River, wooded areas, farm land, and various categories of urban land use. The procedure successfully classified the water, woods, farm land, and industrialized urban categories, but failed to correctly classify residential urban areas due to the nonuniqueness of their spectral signatures.
