Hyperspectral airborne and satellite imagery of Tanimbar (Indonesia) [Hyperspectrale vliegtuig- en satellietopnamen Tanimbar (Indonesië)]
Contact: Knaeps, Els

Description
Hyperspectral images of the coral reef in order to enhance the sustainable development of small island communities like on Pulau Fordata. More specifically, it aims to assess the condition of the coral reef benthic cover in the Pulau Fordata region using CASI hyperspectral data, to create a bathymetric model of the reef structures, and to develop generic data processing techniques and algorithms which can be applied to coral reefs worldwide
