A Futuristic Look at Earth Imaging

As the scanning reticle in the left panel moves over this Hyperion data set (the data from a region near Eldorado, Argentina), the spectral signature of the reflected light appears in the analysis panel on the left. Strong signatures of vegetation are apparent, with occasional signatures of water and the reticle passes over lakes and rivers. The analysis panel represents spectral bands 10 through 55. The entire Hyperion spectral range has 220 bands.
