IS4052 Imaging Spectrometry Theory, Analysis, and Applications

This course is designed to enable scientists to analyze and exploit data from hypercritical sensors. The course utilizes a blend of lectures, demonstrations, case histories, and hands-on imaging spectrometer data analysis. The physical properties of Earth surface materials are defined as the basis for imaging spectrometry utilizing visible/near-infrared (VNIR), short wave infrared(SWIR), and long wave infrared (LWIR) data. Students will learn the theory behind imaging spectrometry measurements and systems, how to analyze the data, and apply lessons learned to analysis of a variety of imaging spectrometer datasets.
