Abstract : FILM; AND DAY AND NIGHT THERMAL INFRARED IMAGERY WITH BANDS OF MULTISPECTRAL IMAGERY. This study looked at the pairing of: (1) Day and Night Thermal Infrared (TIR); (2) Day and Night TIR with Color Infrared film; (3) Day and Night TIR with those channels of the Multispectral system which covered the same portion of the spectrum that is covered by Color film; (4) Day and Night TIR with those channels of the Multispectral system which covered the same portion of the spectrum that is covered on Color Infrared film; and (5) Day and Night TIR with all eight channels of the Multispectral system. The image densities for selected known landuse classes were processed through a Fortran program and used as a model for identifying sample targets of known landuse classes. (Author)
