Airborne Hyperspectral Imaging

Hyperspectral image

Hyperspectral imaging collects and processes information from across the electromagnetic spectrum. Such as the visible light is limited to three bands (red, green, and blue), spectral imaging divides the spectrum into hundreds of bands.

Airborne hyperspectral remote sensing use is increasing for monitoring the development and health of crops or to detect the chemical composition of plants, e.g. to detect their nutrient and water status or pollutants. 

The mining industry uses the technology of hyperspectral imaging to identify various minerals like oil or ore.

As a non-destructive technology, it is also used for leak detection, e.g. for gas pipelines.

Geodata captured from the air: a picture is worth a thousand words

Aircraft, helicopters and drones are indispensable as transport media for aerial survey sensors. Nothing is better for an overview than the view from above. Aerial images show the area under investigation in true form and thanks, to automated modern rectification and correlation processes, as well as high image resolution, the smallest details are accurately positioned: the basis for every GIS, for digital surface models, for every cadastre, for every query.
