Paper Abstract

Until recently imaging spectroscopy was an extensive tool due to the limitations to airborne systems. Airborne imaging spectrometer systems are cost-intensive for the user and the availability for multi-temporal applications is still low. But especially for environmental analysis a high temporal resolution is required because most developments either in natural or in managed ecosystems can only be monitored through time series of remote sensing observations. In 1997 these drawbacks led to the idea of a low-cost imaging spectrometer to overcome the difficulties of the existing systems and provide data for the institute's own environmental research purposes. This was the birth of the AVIS (Airborne Visible/ Infrared imaging Spectrometer) system.
