CASI-1500 VNIR (hyperspectral) Imagery (U of Calgary)

The CASI-1500 is an airborne sensor that captures hyperspectral visible near Infrared (VNIR) imagery with a 1500 pixel field of view, achieving spatial resolutions as high as 25 cm. This sample image of the University of Calgary campus has been supplied for academic purposes by ITRES Research. CASI-1500 hyperspectral VNIR imagery has been used in applications such as detecting crop disease, mapping wetland species, water quality.
