|Abstract||Airborne SAR imagery from the Intera Technologies Ltd., STAR-1 system, along with Landsat TM, airborne MSS and SPOT data were acquired for an experimental site near Swift Current, Saskatchewan. The
STAR-1 data were acquired at three difference look (flight) direction. The primary objective of this study was to determine the relationship between radar backscatter and cultural practices, in particular row direction. A Digital Terrain Model
(slope, aspect and elevation) was used to establish which backscatter variations were mainly due to topography.|
In addition, the complementary role of SAR and visible and infrared data was evaluated using the multi-sensor data set. digital
classification accuracy along with the results from feature selection algorithms were used as evaluation criteria.
