Technical ReportAbstract: This document is the culmination of over 3 years worth of applied research. The overall objective of this multi-year investigation was to assess the utility of high spatial resolution digital imagery to Corps civil works operations. The sources of remotely sensed data used in this research effort include digital airborne multispectral imaging technology, digital airborne hyperspectral imaging technology, and digital satellite multispectral images. System selection was based on the anticipated benefits derived from the acquisition and processing of the unique high spatial resolution images, from each remotely sensed data source, at each independent study site. The project developed and implemented four applications to evaluate the use of high resolution digital remotely sensed data in standard Corps operations. This document summarizes the four projects. The intended audience for this document includes natural resource managers, biologists, ecologists, GIS specialists, and others that are already using or are potentially planning to use high spatial resolution digital remotely sensed imagery for current or future projects. The image and map products, including both raster and vector formatted data, are not provided with this report. The authors can provide the reader access to all of the imagery and final maps.
