fieldRS is an R package to support Remote Sensing oriented field work. It was developed at the Department of Remote Sensing of the University of Würzburg, Germany, within the Central Asia Waters (CAWa) project funded by the German Federal Foreign Office. It is part of the German Water Initiative for Central Asia (the so-called Berlin process), launched by the German Federal Foreign Office launched on the 1st of April of 2008 to support peaceful, sustainable and mutually beneficial management of transboundary water resources in Central Asia.

fieldRS was designed to ease the collection and management of ground truth data. It provides tools that help select sampling sites, correct and pre-process training data and preview classification results in order to identify potentially incorrect samples. The package provides a tutorial (found here) which contains a detailed methodology based on the package. It guides potential users in the full process of designing a remote sensing field campaign from the selection of potential study sites to the development predictive models. At the moment, fieldRS is oriented towards land cover mapping but will be
