Hyperspectral Remote sensing also known as imaging spectrometry emerged as a promising technology for detection and identification of minerals, terrestrial vegetation, man-made materials and backgrounds. Hyperspectral remote sensing deals with measurements in a large number of narrow spectral bands over a contiguous spectral range. Because of its ability to detect narrow absorption features hyperspectral data has significantly found usage in different applications, especially the capability to extract quantitative information. This technology has been used for mineral exploration, identification and mapping of abundances of specific minerals, ecosystem monitoring, monitoring of coastal and inland waters, mapping the variability of soil properties, insect damage etc.
The CEOS Working Group on Capacity Building & Data Democracy (WGCapD) is offering a series of webinars on hyperspectral remote sensing.
