Abstract

The area measurement value is used in almost every discipline. As the development of Remote Sensing, images are widely used for land parcel area measurements. However, measurements from remote sensing images can induce large errors, which usually are not considered by users. In this research, experiments are designed to study area measurement errors influenced by parcel shapes, orientations and scales. It is the first time to clearly quantify the orientation in this issue.
