Abstract

Imagery was collected using a digital multispectral camera during the flight of a Cessna 404 aircraft operated by the UK Environment Agency (EA), for the 2006 field campaign of the Network for Calibration and Validation of EO data (NCAVEO). The flight took place between 9:46 and 11:16 am on 17th June 2006. The digital camera was integrated with an on-board navigation system to provide accurate geometric correction through post-processing. The true colour images are 4080 x 4080 in size, with a nominal ground resolution around 40 cm. The dataset also includes a polygon shape file including the British National Grid geographic co-ordinates and elevation of each photograph.
