Nuarsa, IW; Nishio, F; Hongo, C; Mahardika, IG (2012). Using variance analysis of multitemporal MODIS images for rice field mapping in Bali Province, Indonesia. INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF REMOTE SENSING, 33(17), 5402-5417.

Abstract
Existing methods for rice field classification have some limitations due to the large variety of land covers attributed to rice fields. This study used temporal variance analysis of daily Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) satellite images to discriminate rice fields from other land uses. The classification result was then compared with the reference data. Regression analysis showed that regency and district comparisons produced coefficients of determination (R-2) of 0.97490 and 0.92298, whereas the root mean square errors (RMSEs) were 1570.70 and 551.36 ha, respectively. The overall accuracy of the method in this study was 87.91%, with commission and omission errors of 35.45% and 17.68%, respectively. Kappa analysis showed strong agreement between the results of the analysis of the MODIS data using the method developed in this study and the reference data, with a kappa coefficient value of 0.8371. The results of this study indicated that the algorithm for variance analysis of multitemporal MODIS images could potentially be applied for rice field mapping.
