Hyperspectral Imagery - Calvert Island - 2012

On August 5th, 15th ,and 17th , 2012, TRSI collected hyperspectral, LiDAR and digital image data in four project sites at and near Calvert Island, B.C. using a fixed wing aircraft with LiDAR system and a hyperspectral sensor. A combined GPS/INS System (Inertial Navigation System) was used for aircraft altitude and position. A total of 477.22 km^2 was covered on this mission with a flight height of 1150 meters above ground level (AGL) aiming to obtain 1.5 metre spatial resolution for hyperspectral Imagery.

The hyperspectral imagery was delivered as a set of 94 long and narrow swath “scenes” with each corresponding roughly to an individual flight line (from a grid pattern flight mission). In this fashion the dimensions and orientation varies somewhat from scene to scene. Predominantly there are North-South and West-East scenes which cover the length and width of Calvert and Hecate Islands and a portion of the mainland to the north. There is an inconsistent overlap between scenes in some cases; in others the imagery aligns at the seams or with a small gap in between. While details pertaining to post-processing performed on the imagery by the contractor are lacking, based on analysis the following assumptions have been made:

• The imagery has been georectified (the DEM used is unknown). • The imagery has been radiometrically corrected to some degree although there is evidence that only a few calibrations files were used inconsistently for all scenes during radiometric correction, and overlapping areas between scenes have sometimes large variations in radiance pixel values of the same features on the same band. • No atmospheric correction has been performed on the imagery.

The technical specifications for all scenes are the following:

Due to weather and time constraints faced by the contractor, several small data gaps exist within the project boundary. Additionally systematic small rectangular data gaps within many scenes are present (these are unrelated and additional to those due to “weather and time constraints” stated by the contractor).
