57th Autumn Conference of the Remote Sensing Society of Japan
In this study, we investigated trends in the use of remote sensing (RS) to address some major global environmental issues to see if it is being increasingly or decreasingly used to address each issue. We considered several land, water, air, and integrated Earth system issues. Of the 12 environmental issues we considered, there was an increasing...

The goal of this research is to develop a method for quantitative and objective assessment of the effect of satellite Earth observations on environmental policy. For this purpose, as an initial case study, the protection of the ozone layer is taken up to analyze the different phases and processes where satellite observations might have had an...

This study evaluated the effects of image pansharpening on Vegetation Indices (VIs) in an agricultural area of Thailand, and found that pansharpening was able to downscale single-date and multi-temporal VI data without introducing significant distortions. The downscaled (15m resolution) VI values can be used for estimating above-ground biomass,...
Data or Tool
IGES Remote Sensing Toolbox
This is an ArcGIS 10.x toolbox that includes Geographic Information Systems (GIS) tools for vegetation analysis (creating Vegetation Indices and Fractional Vegetation Cover maps) and image pansharpening. It can be used for processing and analysis of Landsat 8 or other satellite imagery. The toolbox is designed for GIS and Remote Sensing...
