    All hyperspectral library data are freely available?

      Dear Priscilla,

      thank you for your question.

      Yes, in the course we present a number of freely accessible spectral libraries containing different surface materials. In some cases, such as the LUCAS SOIL library, a registration is required prior to downloading the data.

      There are more and more freely accessible spectral libraries becoming available such as the very recently released Open Soil Spectral Library ( Please let us and your fellow students know here in the forum if you find out about more libraries. We may include them in the next version of the course.
