Abstract

The development of multispectral sensors and the growing perspectives of hyperspectral sensors provide new tools for the investigation of the landscape and renew the need to redefine potential and accuracy limitations of traditional methodologies. This paper aims to examine, for some environmental applications, the critical points of the remote sensing problem as a whole. Specifically, the case study of the Fayyum Oasis (Egypt) has been chosen to assess the information content of satellite images under three different profiles, only in appearance distinct: the classification of surface lithology, the evaluation of the water quality and the land reclamation monitoring. To validate the results, some ground truth data acquired during a preliminary survey conducted in October 2010 have been used.
