Paper Abstract

A hyperspectral “group shoot” was conducted during September 1999 by Analytical Imaging and Geophysics (AIG) in cooperation with HyVista Corporation, Sydney, Australia, utilizing HyMap, an advanced 126-band hyperspectral sensor covering the 0.4 - 2.5 micrometer region with 3-10 m spatial resolution. The purpose of this effort was to make high-quality hyperspectral data commercially available to customers for their sites of interest across the United States. Over 200 flightlines of HyMap data were collected throughout the United States for government, academic, and commercial customers. The standard product delivered by AIG/Hy Vista was fully-calibrated radiance data along with precision-geocoded, apparent reflectance spectral image data. This marks the first time that commercial hyperspectral data has been delivered in a standard map-referenced, reflectance-corrected, ready-to-use form. Preliminary work with these datasets has demonstrated unprecedented spectral mapping capabilities for a variety of disciplines, including geology, vegetation studies, environmental assessment, near-shore marine mapping, and military applications. Data were also acquired in support of data simulation efforts the proposed Warfighter and the Australian ARIES hyperspectral satellites. Examples of the 1999 data, a description of the production processing flow, and scientific analysis results are discussed here.
