LiDAR data was collected by the UK Environment Agency on 17th June 2006 as part of the Network for Calibration and Validation of EO data (NCAVEO) 2006 Field Campaign. The data was collected from a Cessna 404 aircraft carrying an Optech 3100 LiDAR. The sensor was integrated with the on-board navigation system to provide accurate geometric correction through post-processing. The LiDAR was operated at 33 kHz to give a nominal pulse spacing around 1-2 m, and intensity plus first and last pulse returns were recorded. For further information please see the LiDAR survey report in linked documentation and the dataset's metadata document.
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.
NCAVEO: Digital Camera Imagery collected during the flight of a Cessna 404 Aircraft operated by the UK Environment Agency (EA)
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.
