The knowledge of the actual structure and 'intensity of land cover is a fundamental information for the urban planning. Some aspects of the seeked information can be extracted from satellite imagery. This presentation gives some exemples over the Metropolitan area of Lisbon. First, an image segmentation is accomplished over an XS3 band. This process leads to a rather valid subdivision of the region in morphological units. Secondly, the urban and vegetal categories, issued from a land cover classification, are modeled in the form of statistical surfaces. The statistical surfaces take advantage of the analytical power of a raster solving approach. Fi-nally, the urban and vegetal intensity surfaces are merged. The result can be considered as an attempt of ecozoning the considered region. The paper discuss also the possibilities of using remotly sensed data for urban planning. [less ▲]
