Abstract: This paper describes a mapping project carried out using both optical and SAR data on an agricultural area in northern Italy where the main crops are corn, rice and wheat. Temporal trends of backscatter and reflectance, given by the variations in vegetation growth, soil conditions and agricultural practices were analyzed and interpreted thanks to the ground-measured data. Information extracted from both optical and SAR data (vegetation indices, backscatter and texture features) were used to create training sets for implementing three different classification approaches. The work aimed at comparing early crop maps with maps derived at the end of the season. Results show that the classification accuracy obtained using only multispectral optical data is higher than the one reached using only SAR as input. Integrating both optical and SAR multitemporal features provides some advantages in terms of a more reliable crop map, especially during an early temporal stage scenario. Among the supervised algorithms tested, Maximum Likelihood shows the best overall accuracy performances at each thematic level, time step and using both optical and SAR input data.
