Summary:
Delineating the rural-urban fringe around an urban area has importance because much urban growth takes place on rural lands, often agricultural, thus changing land use patterns. Characteristics of geographic phenomena in this fringe area are analyzed and illustrated. This investigation examines.the possibilities for geographically delineating with multi-spectral imagery from ERTS-1 satellite the fringe zone of Delray Beach, a coastal city in southeastern Florida. Experimental methodology interprets land use categories from high-altitude color-infrared and ERTS-1 imagery. A closed-circuit television system demonstrates possibilities for automatic analysis. Land use data were classified with automation as the principal objective. Some filtering techniques were used for image enhancement. Test results indicate that with sufficient ground data acquisition and statistical computations the fringe zone can be mapped using ERTS imagery as a data base.
