Canada AAFC Annual Crop Inventory (AAFC/ACI)

Starting in 2009, the Earth Observation Team of the Science and Technology
Branch (STB) at Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) began the process
of generating annual crop type digital maps. Focusing on the Prairie
Provinces in 2009 and 2010, a Decision Tree (DT) based methodology was
applied using optical (Landsat-5, AWiFS, DMC) and radar (Radarsat-2) based
satellite images. Beginning with the 2011 growing season, this activity has
been extended to other provinces in support of a national crop inventory.
To date this approach can consistently deliver a crop inventory that meets
the overall target accuracy of at least 85% at a final spatial resolution of
30m (56m in 2009 and 2010).
