Abstract

Worldview-3 stereo-extracted DSMs represent state-of-the-art products in the domain of satellite-based digital surface modelling. Main goal of our research was to evaluate the vertical accuracy of WV-3 derived DSMs over olive groves. Creation of high-accuracy WV-3 derived DSMs would allow efficient large scale management and protection of this valuable agricultural resource. Vertical accuracy of WV-3 derived DSM was evaluated at two test sites within Olive Gardens of Lun (Pag Island, Croatia), through the comparison with reference UAV photogrammetry derived VHR DSM. Two test sites were selected by object-based approach, established on spectral (NDVI, VARI) and height information (digital olive models (DOMs)). While first test site covers one single, individual oldest olive tree (45 m2), second test site covers larger area (2500 m2) with dense, unattended olive trees. Although vertical accuracy of individual olive trees still significantly deviates from reference model (RMSE = 3.604 m; MAE = 3.203 m), accuracy within larger test was much better (RMSE = 1.462 m; MAE = 1.127 m). This demonstrated that WV-3 stereo imagery has great potential for application in creation of DSMs over large scale forested areas, that would be hard to cover with field geospatial techniques (e.g. LiDAR or UAV photogrammetry).
