Abstract : Commercially produced multispectral imagery (MSI) promises to play an increasingly important role for terrain and others in the United States Army in future years. There are several reasons for this. First, some useful types of quality imagery may not be as plentiful in the future as they have been in the past, and MSI can help to fill the void. Secondly, commercially produced imagery is not classified, and is therefore easy to handle and store, particularly in field environments. Thirdly, the resolution of MSI is slowly improving, making it more useful for detailed analysis. And finally, techniques for computerized multispectral classification and image enhancement, potentially useful tools for terrain analysts, should become more readily available. (RH)
