This dataset compromises eight flight lines which were acquired on 17th June 2006 using an Itres Instruments Compact Airborne Spectrographic Imager (CASI-3) as part of the Network for Calibration and Validation of Earth Observation data (NCAVEO) 2006 Field Campaign. The instrument was onboard a Cessna 404 aircraft operated by the UK Environment Agency (EA) and was operated in hyperspectral mode, with 32 spectral bands and a nominal ground resolution of 1m. The Environment Agency identified a possible spectral shift problem in the CASI-3 instrument during June 2006. The problem was corrected but it is still unknown how much the spectral shift occurred during data collection for NCAVEO. The document ‘CASI3 Wavelength correction for NCAVEO.pdf’ in further documentation provides further details. EasGeo software is also stored in the EasGeo folder in the directory as easgeo.sav, as well as documentation with further details on the data.
