   As I wrote, it's been a very long time since I calculated NDVIs to
classify vegetation types from remotely sensed imagery. However, I vaguely
recall being able to pick bands (satellite imagery) or RGB colors (aerial
photographic imagery) so as to distinguish the vegetation of interest.

   Are there other factors (nominal such as season or province; ratio such as
aspect, size, or elevation) that can be used as a mask to reduce the
vegetational clutter?
