Why Use Hyperspectral Imagery?
An excellent article is written by Mr. Peg Shippert on "Why Use Hyperspectral Imagery?"
While multispectral images have been in regular use since the 1970s, the widespread use of hyperspectral images is a relatively recent trend. Hyperspectral imaging, also known as imaging spectrometry, is now a reasonably familiar concept in the world of remote sensing. However, for many remote sensing specialists who have not yet had the opportunity to use hyperspectral imagery in their work, the benefits of hyperspectral imagery may still be vague.
Through this article, the author Mr. Peg Shippert hope that People's interest in this promising technology will be sparked as they learn about the fascinating detail available in hyperspectral imagery; detailed information that is being harvested by an increasing number of investigators.
