This study was carried out in order to investigate the capability of digital data of ETM+ sensor in separation of forest types in Gazoo district of Lafoor area in Savadkooh. The bands were controlled according to radiometric and geometric errors, separately. Band 1, was omitted because of the existence of radiometric error and its less importance in vegetation cover study. Geometric correction was performed by 21 ground control points with DEM, up to ortho rectification level with precision of less than half pixel (0.3 pixel). The supervised classification was performed by using basic and synthetic bands to 6 classes, (pure beech type, mixed beech type, mixed ho...
