Spectral Library

Spectral signature libraries are catalogues of the spectral optical properties or responses of target species and other elements in terrestrial or aquatic environments of interest. These spectral signatures drive the algorithms that enable the extraction of quantitative habitat information from multi- and hyper-spectral remote sensing imagery. The spectral signatures are a fundamental property of target species and this information can only be obtained through direct measurement, generally by in-situ or sampling methods.
