Segah et al 2012: The Specific Spectral Data of Dominant Trees in Peat-Forest in Central Kalimantan, Indonesia
Theme IX. Tropical peatlands
This paper reports results of the compilation of the spectral library of dominant trees in peat-forest in Central Kalimantan, Indonesia supported under JST-JICA Project: “Wild Fire and Carbon Management in Peat Forest in Indonesia”. Spectral libraries are commonly established as a means to archive representative signatures of natural materials. Such signatures can then be used to train feature extraction and classification algorithms applied to remote sensing data imagery. Spectral analyses were performed to the 33 dominant species in peat-forest in Central Kalimantan, Indonesia obtained during the field survey measurement (in-situ measurements) in 2011. We found, each vegetation type has unique spectral signature or characteristics. The shapes of reflectance spectra can be used for identification of vegetation types combine with remote sensing data.
