Summary
Abstract: ASTER data and logical operators were successfully used to map phyllic and
argillic-altered rocks in the southeastern part of Afghanistan. Hyperion data
were used to correct ASTER band 5 and ASTER data were georegistered to
orthorectified Landsat TM data. Logical operator algorithms produced argillic
and phyllic byte ASTER images that were converted to vector data and overlain
on ASTER and Landsat ... View entire text
