Multispectral and Hyperspectral Research

Multispectral data acquired in space and by airborne sensors have been utilized extensively at CSR for the past 15 years in research projects dealing with such diverse problems as land cover and topographic mapping, physical and biological oceanography, and archeology.  Recently, this research has expanded to include analysis of hyperspectral data acquired simultaneously in tens to hundreds of narrow channels.  New algorithms have been developed both to exploit the spectral information of these sensors and to better deal with the computational demands of these enormous data sets.
Hyperspectral (HYMAP) data over Port Bolivar, Texas collected September 1999.
