Distribution of Earth Observing-1 (EO-1) Hyperion Hyperspectral

Detailed Description

Figure 6: There are some 70,000+ images from the 2001-2015 time-period spread across the world. These images provide a rare opportunity to conduct pioneering research using hyperspectral data. These images are used to develop the Global Hyperspectral Imaging-Spectral Library of Agricultural Crops (GHISA). The spectral signature that can be extracted from the hyperspectral images is illustrated for some leading world crops in this image. (Thenkabail et al. 2014)
