CHRIS/PROBA is capable of sampling reflected radiation at five viewing angles over the visible and near-infrared regions of the solar spectrum with a relatively high spatial resolution (~17m). We exploited both the spectral and angular domain of CHRIS data in order to map the surface heterogeneity of an Alpine coniferous forest during winter. In the spectral domain, linear spectral unmixing of the nadir image resulted in a canopy cover map. In the angular domain, pixelwise inversion of the Rahman–Pinty–Verstraete (RPV) model at a single wavelength at the red edge (722 nm) yielded a map of the Minnaert-k parameter that provided information on surface heterogeneity at subpixel scale. Merging both maps resulted in a forest cover heterogeneity map, which contains more detailed information on canopy heterogeneity at the CHRIS subpixel scale than can be obtained from a single-source data set.
