Spectrodirectional remote sensing: From pixels to processes


Schaepman, M E (2007). Spectrodirectional remote sensing: From pixels to processes. International Journal of Applied Earth Observation and Geoinformation, 9(2):204-223.

Abstract

This paper discusses the historical evolution of imaging spectroscopy in Earth observation as well as directional (or multiangular) research leading to current achievements in spectrodirectional remote sensing. It elaborates on the evolution from two separate research areas into a common approach to quantify the interaction of light with the Earth surface. The contribution of spectrodirectional remote sensing towards an improved understanding of the Earth System is given by discussing the benefits of converging from individual pixel analysis to process models in the land-biosphere domain. The paper concludes with an outlook of research focus and upcoming areas of interest emphasizing towards multidisciplinary approaches using integrated system solutions based on remote and in situ sensing, data assimilation, and state space estimation algorithms.

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.
