Gulf of Mexico Wetland Sample (Lower Suwannee NWR)

This data sample is taken from SpecTIR’s extensive hyperspectral baseline environmental dataset covering multiple National Wildlife Reserves in the Gulf of Mexico during the period of May-June 2010. This specific sample is from the Lower Suwanee NWR, collected at a 2m spatial resolution and a nominal 5nm band spacing covering the spectral range of ~395-2450nm.


Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill Sample: June 06, 2010

This data set has no associated ground truth and was collected as a target of opportunity. SpecTIR is making this data available to anyone interested in evaluating the unique spectra associated with the ongoing oil spill crises in the Gulf of Mexico. The data was collected at 2.2m GSD and 360 spectral channels, covering 390-2450nm.
