A hyperspectral sensor is an airborne system capable of recording up to 250 individually selected channels of spectral data in the range of 400nm to 1050nm. This is equivalent to having 250 cameras simultaneously recording different parts of the visual and near infra-red part of the spectrum.
A hyperspectral sensor provides the ability to record, distinguish and map the following:
- specific vegetation types
- vegetation health
- specific vegetation diseases
- suspended materials and chemicals in waterways
- soil types
- certain minerals
- environmental contamination
A hyperspectral survey is used in forest health, forestry sustainability, biosecurity, geological mining surveys, vegetation and species mapping, environmental monitoring and contamination surveys.
