    Investigation the impact of satellite image resolution on landscape metrics

    Principle Investigator

    ITU Scientific Research Foundation, MGA-2017-40936, 2017-2019

    Bu çalışma kapsamında, 150 km2 lik pilot bir alan için, farklı mekânsal çözünürlükteki uydu görüntüleri (30 cm-10 m arasında değişen) nesne tabanlı sınıflandırma yaklaşımı ile sınıflandırılıp arazi örtüsü/kullanımı haritaları oluşturulacaktır. Sonraki aşamada farklı arazi örtüsü/kullanımı haritalarından farklı peyzaj metrikleri hesaplanıp; mekânsal çözünürlük ve sınıflandırma doruluğunun peyzaj metriği hesabına etkisi araştırılacak ve şehir alanların yüksek doğrulukla sınıflandırılması ve peyzaj metrikleri ile analizinde en optimum uydu verisi, peyzaj metrikleri ve çözünürlük-peyzaj metriği ilişkisi hakkında değerlendirme yapılacaktır.

    National Land Cover Database (CORINE Turkey 2012)

    Principle Investigator

    Ministry of Forest and Water Affairs, 2012K100160, 2013-2015.

    Mapping of the Earth’s land cover and use is essential to understand the natural and manmade processes effecting our environment and conduct future projections for several phenomena such as urbanization, deforestation, hydrological processes, climate change etc. In this study, a novel National Land Cover/Use (NLC) nomenclature, which was created from Coordination of Information on Environment (CORINE) land cover/use classification system by expanding Level 3 CORINE classes to a fourth level including 75 subclasses, is presented and applied to 3 different study areas having different landscape characteristics

    National Agricultural Yield Monitoring and Prediction System using Remote Sensing, GIS and in-situ measurements

    Remote Sensing and GIS WP Leader

    Ministry of Development,2011-2017

    TARBIL is a high technologic project aiming to create up-to-date agricultural parcel map of the country, incorporate agricultural parcels with cadastral information, measure the crop yield by commodity and estimate the crop yield for upcoming season. The project aims to estimate the crop yield using the integration of ground and space based measurements.

    Overall system will integrate data from different sources and create agricultural information by means of a decision support system which will be benefitted for agricultural policies and management.

    Using remote sensing technologies to identify grape diversity and to determine the spatial distribution of vineyard areas

    Principle Investigator

    The Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TUBITAK) Project, ÇAYDAG-109Y277

    In this project, it has been aimed to conduct a pilot research to determine the spatial distribution of vineyard areas in Tekirdag city, to identify the grape diversity in Sarköy district, to create a spectral library for different grape types with respect to phenological periods and to create a national viticulture information system. Vegetation index maps and land cover maps created from Hyperion, CHRIS-Proba, SPOT 5, IKONOS and Worldview-2 satellite images were analyzed to determine the boundaries, spatial and textural distributions of vineyard areas in Tekirdag city.
