This article focuses on retrieving the multi-scale crown closure (CC) of Moso bamboo forest using Systeme Pour l’Observation de la Terre (SPOT5) and Landsat Thematic Mapper (TM) satellite remotely sensed imagery based on the geometric-optical model and the artificial neural network (ANN) model. CC at local scale was first retrieved using the Li-Strahler geometric-optical model (LSGM) and images from an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). Then, multi-scale CC was retrieved using the Erf-BP model (a kind of back-propagation (BP) feed-forward neural network, which takes a Gaussian error function (Erf) as an activation function of the hidden layer) based on a combination of SPOT5 and Landsat TM images. The results show that by combining multi-source remotely sensed data, the CC of Moso bamboo forest can be retrieved at the local region, township area, and county scale with high accuracy using the Erf-BP model. Estimated values have a linear relationship with the observed values at a significance level of 0.05. The highest accuracy of the retrieval of CC (referred to as LSGM-UAV-CC) was observed at the local region based on LSGM and UAV, with the coefficient of determination (R-2) of 0.63, followed by that at the township area with an R-2 of 0.0.55 based on LSGM-UAV-CC and SPOT5 data using the Erf-BP model (Erf-BP-SPOT5-CC), and that at the county scale with an R-2 of 0.54 based on Erf-BP-SPOT5-CC and Landsat TM data using the Erf-BP model (Erf-BP-TM-CC).
