The combination of Landsat TM and ERS-1 SAR data can lead potentially to improved land cover mapping. Initially, however, SAR data must undergo speckle noise filtering. In southern Europe where land cover units are very small, conventional filtering techniques can remove valuable information. This paper describes the potential use of segmentations of Landsat TM data to describe boundaries which can serve as a basis for SAR speckle noise filtering prior to incorporation in integrated multi-sensor classification.
