A new paper published recently in PFG presents our ongoing research on the scale issue in the context of supervised image classification for crop monitoring. It extends a conceptional framework for the definition of pixel size requirements in land use classification, which we prevsiously published in Remote Sensing. It adds an analysis of the thematic scale, i.e. the selction of a proper class legend and its interaction with the spatial scale (pixel size).
