Paper Abstract

An airborne programmable imaging spectrometer has been developed to meet the increased requirements of land and water imaging in general and for mapping of chlorophyll fluorescence in particular. This latter application gives rise to the name of the sensor which is called Fluorescence Line Lmager (FLI). An imaging spectrometer provides the opportunity to examine both narrow bandwidth features in the target spectrum and to acquire high fidelity spatial images. The FLI has also been applied to hydrographic mapping, mapping of crops, forest and rangeland as well as geobotanical exploration. Distinctive spectral features which fall near atmospheric absorption lines of water and oxygen can be readily discerned and atmospheric artifacts can be avoided in the interpretation of resulting imagery.
