Satellite Remote Sensing of Savannas: Current Status and Emerging Opportunities
Similarity and contrast in local-scale definitions of an African savanna along a canopy cover gradient. Close-up of a m area within each map from Figure 3 shows inconsistencies in how tropical savannas along a woody canopy cover gradient are characterized in global products. The numbers within the parentheses under the title of each satellite-derived product indicate the native spatial resolution in which the product was provided. The (Planet Labs) PlanetScope 3-meter-resolution satellite imagery in (a)–(d) are in the same order as in Figure 3. Each map panel covers identical dimensions as the corresponding PlanetScope satellite image.
