The results of the previous three parts are 
the inputs to the particular classifier to classify 
the cover type of each unknown pixel. And, the 
subsequent results of the newly derived land 
cover data can be used to update the archival 
land cover file in the GIS. 
This approach can dramatically reduce the data 
volume which has to be handled when spatial 
resolution is increased because the number of 
pixels of each crop field to be processed can 
be kept constant and the total number of fields 
for a defined size of area will remain unchanged 
in a certain period of time. The updating of 
polygon data file is not required so often as 
that of the content inside the polygon area. 
The classification accuracy will be considerably 
improved due to the purity of the pixel chosen 
and the high accessibility of ancillary data 
available in GIS. The field check strategy modified 
by this system can contribute the general accuracy, 
The geometric accuracy will be as good as that 
in the GIS which is claimed to be considerably 
higher than that can be derived from the most
