Spectroscopic Image Analysis

RMS 6290 3 Quarter Hours
Course Level CPS - Graduate
Description Explores the various techniques and work flows associated with nonliteral imagery analysis using hyperspectral data from numerous airborne and space-borne hyperspectral imaging (HSI) sensors. The course is divided into four modules: (1) basic theoretical concepts that underpin HSI analysis; (2) data preparation and other ancillary concepts such as spectral libraries and atmospheric correction that are critical to nonliteral analysis but are preprocessing steps; (3) nonliteral exploitation techniques, covered in sufficient depth to give the students an opportunity to understand the different methods and procedures used; (4) a final project where students are expected to conduct nonliteral analysis of a hyperspectral image from pre- through postprocessing. The ENVI software system is used extensively each week.


Students should refer to the CPS Prerequisite Table for course prerequisite and corequisite information.
