This article evaluates the use of the Landsat Multispectral Sensor System (MSS) as a tool for mapping the woody component of rangeland vegetation. The study area consists of a zone of low tree and shrub savanna along the southern margin of the Okavango Delta, Ngamiland, Botswana. Relationships between reflectance data recorded by the Landsat system and percentage woody cover were analysed. The results were used to produce maps showing the extent of various classes of percentage woody cover.
