DESCRIPTION

       i.tasscap  calculates  Tasseled  Cap (Kauth Thomas, TC) transformation for Landsat TM data
       (TM4, TM5, ETM7) and MODIS  data.   The  tasseled  cap  transformation  is  effectively  a
       compression  method  to  reduce  multiple  spectral  data into a few bands. The method was
       originally developed for understanding important phenomena of crop development in spectral
       space (Kauth and Thomas, 1976).

       Tasseled cap coefficients for Landsat 7 ETM+ are at-satellite reflectance values (C. Huang
       et al., 2001), the conversion can be achieved with i.landsat.toar.

       The following tasseled cap components are generated:

           ·   tasscap.1: corresponds to brightness,

           ·   tasscap.2: corresponds to greenness,

           ·   tasscap.3: corresponds to wetness,

           ·   tasscap.4: corresponds to atmospheric haze (only selected sensors: Landsat 5,7,8).

EXAMPLE

       Calculation of TC maps from North Carolina Landsat 7 ETM scene:
       # See manual page of i.landsat.toar for preprocessing
       g.region raster=lsat7_2002_toar.1 -p
       i.tasscap sensor=landsat7_etm \
         input=lsat7_2002_toar.1,lsat7_2002_toar.2,lsat7_2002_toar.3,lsat7_2002_toar.4,lsat7_2002_toar.5,lsat7_2002_toar.7 \
         output=lsat7_2002_tasscap
       Results:

       ’Brightness’ Tasseled Cap component 1                        ’Greenness’ Tasseled Cap component 2

       ’Wetness’ Tasseled Cap component 3                           ’Atmospheric haze’ Tasseled Cap component 4
