This paper investigates the use of satellite data for crop area estimation in the northern part of the , . The satellite data were obtained by the SPOT HRV (High Resolution Visible) on . The satellite data were geometrically corrected to the Palestine Grid using 1: 50,000 Israeli topographic maps. The study investigated the ability of SPOT HRV data to produce accurate crop area estimation of the northern part of the that is characterized with small field sizes and complex physical environment. The study area was divided into five strata and training data were selected using field survey, aerial photographs, maps, and interviewing farmers.
