Pre-processing of dual-view FIGOS Data: towards operational BRDF retrieval


Hueni, A; Schopfer, J; Schläpfer, D; Kneubühler, M; Nieke, J (2008). Pre-processing of dual-view FIGOS Data: towards operational BRDF retrieval. In: XXIth ISPRS Congress, Beijing, 3 July 2008 - 11 July 2008, 19-24.

Abstract

The Bidirectional Reflectance Distribution Function (BRDF) is an inherent property of natural and manmade materials. Its effects depend on the illumination/observation geometry and wavelengths and are apparent in groundbased, airborne and spaceborne imagery. The BRDF is a fundamental quantity from which all other illumination/reflection configurations can be derived. Calibration and validation of hyperspectral images requires knowledge of the BRDF if spectrodirectional effects are to be accounted for. The BRDF can be retrieved from dual-view field goniometer system (FIGOS) data, which is stored in the spectral database SPECCHIO.
The retrieval must be precluded by pre-processing steps, which apply transformations on the raw field data and according metadata.
SPECCHIO has been updated to support such pre-processing. Intercalibrations of the involved instruments and temporal corrections lead to a network of operations to be applied to the input data. A generalisation of the processing has led to the concept of the Space Processing Chain, allowing the flexible combination of modules to form complex processing flows as required by the goniometer data pre-processing. The newly added support of intercalibration factors in the SPECCHIO data model will be an important asset in future round robin experiments. The Space Chain approach will operationalise the retrieval of BRDF from dual-view FIGOS data and generally increase the usefulness of the SPECCHIO system by the introduction of user configurable processing.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
