The overall goal of the study is to evaluate multi-sensor and multi-spectral satellite data to characterise different freshwater habitat zones of large rivers and lakes of the Waikato region. The earlier evaluation of different sources of remotely sensed data suggested the implementation of sub-pixel classification on the QuickBird satellite image of Tongariro River delta region. The current research is further expanding the same research on other freshwater environments within the Waikato region.
