The State of Georgia and the Georgia Institute of Technology have created an exemplary relationship in the formation of a cohesive group for the analysis of Landsat data, its application to real world problems, and its inclusion in applications using geographic data base techniques. This group has evolved over a period of four to five years and lists as its accomplishments several successful demonstration projects using Landsat data, an operational Landsat classification of the entire State of Georgia using 60 classes, the integration of Landsat data into several geographic data bases for use in operational short and long range planning, and the development of those data bases. Funds for performing these projects have come from a variety of state, federal, and local governmental agencies. The state of Georgia has immediate access to an Earth Resources Digital Analysis system designed and assembled by Georgia Tech for dedicated computer analysis of Landsat and other geographically oriented data.
