Abstract : This is the first report on the second phase of the project to apply geostatistics to remote imagery. The main focus of the research will be to use geostatistics to - minimize the amount of data needed to be stored from remotely sensed images. There is a large amount of redundant information in most spectral images, and this can be removed by sampling the image optimally and retaining only that information that is essential to restore the image at a particular spatial resolution. Fort Belvoir has been chosen for the second analysis. On receipt of the image data we shall do preliminary analyses: compute summary statistics, variogram analyses, correlation analysis and mapping of the wavebands. Using the variogram models and solving the kriging equations for a range of sampling intervals an optimal sampling interval will be determined to enable the image to be reconstructed at a chosen resolution.
