Paper Abstract

To develop the full potential of multispectral data acquired from satellites, increased knowledge and understanding of the spectral characteristics of specific earth features is required. Knowledge of the relationships between the spectral characteristics and important parameters of earth surface features can best be obtained by carefully controlled studies over areas, fields, or plots where complete data describing the condition of targets is attainable and where frequent, timely spectral measurements can be obtained. The currently available instrumentation systems are either inadequate or too costly to obtain these data. Additionally, there is a critical need for standardized acquisition and calibration procedures to ensure the validity and comparability of data.
