Paper Abstract

The development of hyperspectral remote sensing has been conducted in the middle 1980s. Since then a number of hyperspectral imagers has been developed. The spectral response of it has covered the visible, near infrared, shortwave infrared and thermal infrared regions. In some time of the technical developments, the applications in various areas have also been conducted. For mineral exploration, the difference minerals as well as the alteration zones have been analyzed and extracted. Hyperspectral imagery enabled the detailed classification of vegetation. In case of study of wetland environment, some subspecies of wetland vegetation have been distinguished. Based on the spectral characteristics of vegetation and some artificial objects the urban environment and mapping have been tested by using of the hyperspectral remote sensing integrated with high spatial resolution data. In the studies the thermal infrared multispectral remote sensing has also been developed and dealt with the geological application.
