Abstract

A principal component image enhancement has been effective in applying Landsat data to geologic mapping in a heavily forested area of E Virginia. The image enhancement procedure consists of a principal component transformation, a histogram normalization, and the inverse principal componnet transformation. The enhancement preserves the independence of the principal components, yet produces a more readily interpretable image than does a single principal component transformation. -from Authors
