Paper Abstract

During the last two decades, airborne hyperspectral sensors such as the AVIRIS or DAIS have been proved very useful but quite expensive tool for the detection and mapping of earth surface minerals. On November 2000 the launch of the Earth Observing 1 (EO-1) satellite, which included Hyperion, the first spaceborne imaging spectrometer, provided a new low cost tool in remote sensing research. This study evaluates hyperspectral data from Hyperion, as well as multispectral data from the EO-1 Advanced Land Imager (ALI) and the Landsat 7 ETM+ for mineral mapping in Milos Island. The three sensors examined in this study have similar spatial resolution, totally different spectral resolution and radiometric quality characteristics. All the data were collected the same day within one-minute time. As a result the atmospheric conditions were exactly the same and that make the data ideal for comparison. The performance of the EO-1 Hyperion imaging spectrometer with the Advanced Land Imager (ALI) and the Landsat 7 ETM+ sensor was compared using a method that aggregated portions of the Hyperion 10 nm bands to simulate the broader multispectral bands of ALI and ETM+. The general process was to calculate a weighted sum of the Hyperion bands that covered each Landsat band. The weights used in the sum were derived, by comparing the spectral response of the hyperspectral bands with the respective multispectral band. Different band ratios like the TM3/TM1 sensitive on the iron oxide detection, or different combinations sensitive on mineral (TM5/7, TM5/4, TM3/1) or hydrothermal anomalies (TM5/7, TM3/1, TM4/3) detection were used for the comparison of the three data sets and the results are presented in this study.
