DESI—Detection of Early-Season Invasives (Software-Installation Manual and User’s Guide Version 1.0)
U.S. Geological Survey Open File Report 2010-1302
This report describes a software system for detecting early-season invasive plant species, such as cheatgrass. The report includes instructions for installing the software and serves as a user’s guide in processing Landsat satellite remote sensing data to map the distributions of cheatgrass and other early-season invasive plants. The software was developed for application to the semi-arid regions of southern Utah; however, the detection parameters can be altered by the user for application to other areas.
