AVIRIS Moffet Field Flight Run 1

f970620t01p02_r03_sc01.a.hdr

This image is from the AVIRIS sensor. This data was taken from the AVIRS Free Standard Data Products Downloads Page at the NASA JPL website. This is the first flight line of the Moffet Field reflectance sample. The image was taken in 1997 and is of Moffet Field, California at the southern end of San Francisco Bay. The data file was renamed from .rfl to .bip and an ENVI header file (.hdr) was created to ease loading into Opticks.

This image contains all 224 bands that the AVIRIS sensor collected with a wavelength spectrum from 400 to 2500 nanometers that covers the complete VIS-NIR-SWIR spectrum.

Hyperspectral Samson Sensor

This data is owned by Oregon State University. The original dataset can be downloaded from WeoGeo at http://market.weogeo.com/datasets/osucoas_hyperspec_goesr_sep11_e.

The image you can download from our site has been modified from the original by adding the wavelength and wavelength units field to the ENVI header (.hdr) file. You can copy and redistribute this dataset only under the conditions that you retain the notice provided in the README.txt that is bundled into this download.


SAMSON.hdr

This hyperspectral dataset was generated by the SAMSON sensor. It covers the spectral range of 400nm-900nm with a band width of 3.2nm. The data was collected by the Florida Environmental Research Institute as part of the GOES-R sponsored experiment.

The instrument flown during the collect is the SAMSON, a push-broom,visible to near IR, hyperspectral sensor. This sensor was designed and developed by FERI. The following paper describes the basic design of the sensor: Kohler et al. (2006)

This dataset utilized the new radiometric calibration technique specifically designed to characterize and correct the stray light found within the sensor. The following paper describes the approach: Kohler et al. (2004)

The sensor was coupled with the Applanix - GPS/INS system and a Gimbel mount, to gather the sensor attitude and positional information.

This dataset has been atmospherically corrected using TAFKAA, a hyperspectral atmospheric correction algorithm that is a heavily modified version of ATREM which was developed by NRL, with this parameter set.

Water Vapor = 1.0 cm
Ozone = .302 atm-cm
Tau550 = 0.09
Rh = 98%
Wind Speed = 6 m/s
Model = maritime

Note: This data is in units of Remote Sensing Reflectance. A scale factor has been applied to the data also. Please divide the data by 100,000 to get it in its original scale.

This is a video taken from the Pro 100 camera system developed by Hi-Cam. This was taken from the the video gallery provided by Hi-Cam. The original video was in .mpg format and the image was converted by hand into the Ice format, while down converting to grayscale. This video was taken from a remote control plane and shows the plane flying over a field and then being caught by the remote control operator. In order to render this video in Opticks, select "View -> Create Animation..." after loading the dataset. Then press the "Play" button on the Animation Toolbar.

US Census TIGERLINE Shapefiles For New York

This screenshots shows the provided shapefiles loaded into Opticks and overlayed on the "ASTER New York 2006 April 28" which is also provided as free Opticks sample data. This download includes 3 shapefiles: the area landmarks for Kings County of New York State, the area landmarks for Queens County of New York State and the Points of Interest for Queens county for the year 2007. These shapefiles were provided by the US Census Burea, specifically the TIGERLINE datasets.

In order to view these shapefiles in Opticks, you will need to download the "ASTER New York 2006 April 28" dataset also provided on this page. You will then need to drag and drop one of the GeoTiffs (.tiff) onto a running instance of the Opticks application. You will then need to Georeference the loaded dataset, by selecting "Geo -> Georeference" from the "Geo" toolbar in Opticks. Once georeferenced, you can drag and drop any of the shapefiles (.shp) onto the running instance of Opticks. At this point the shapefiles will have been successfully loaded.
