when we investigate land-cover using the instruments aboard Landsat satellites we collect sets of data for different wavelengths some are in the infrared and others correspond to blue green and red visible light we can combine any three of the images to create different depictions of Earth's surface what you're seeing now is a Landsat image of Florida made with data from the blue green and red visible wavelengths we call this a natural color image because

it looks approximately like what we would see with our naked eye if we flew far above Florida [Music] but we could choose data from other wavelengths and map them to blue green and red colors to highlight different features of the land surface with this particular depiction of the multispectral data for example we can see much greater contrast between trees and shrubs and Sawgrass Marsh than was

apparent in the natural color image we call certain combinations of wavelengths false color images because they do not replicate what we see with the naked eye yet they allow us to create images where we can highlight or enhance different surface features the following depiction approximates the type of image that you can get from color infrared film it turns out that vegetation growing active vegetation reflects a lot of light in the

near-infrared and so areas with healthy growing vegetation jump out as red in these images you can easily distinguish the healthy agriculture more clearly than you can in the true color image here you can look at the three different depictions of the multispectral data we used to create these images and you can see how the surface cover appears different with some features enhanced in the different depictions
