Paper Abstract

A procedure has been developed to measure the spatial mis-registration of the bands of imaging spectrometers using data acquired by the sensor in flight. This is done for each across-track pixel and for all bands, thus allowing the measurement of the instrument's 'keystone' and related inter-band spatial shifts. The procedure uses spatial features present in the scene. The inter-band spatial relationship determinations are made by correlating these features as detected by the various bands. Measurements have been made for a number of instruments including the Airborne Visible/Infrared Imaging Spectrometer (AVIRIS), Hyperion, Compact Airborne Spectrographic Imager (casi), SWIR (Short Wave Infra-Red) Full Spectrum Imager (SFSI), and Aurora. The measurements on AVIRIS data were performed as a test of the procedure; since AVIRIS is a whisk-broom scanner it is expected to be free of keystone. The airborne Aurora, casi, and SFSI and the satellite sensor Hyperion are all pushbroom instruments, exhibiting varying degrees of keystone. The potential impact of keystone upon spectral similarity measures is examined.
