Description

This dataset contains Level 1A (L1A) unrectified surface radiance image files as well as files of observational geometry and illumination parameters and supporting sensor band information from NASA's Airborne Visible / Infrared Imaging Spectrometer-Next Generation (AVIRIS-NG) instrument. This imagery was collected as part of the Surface Biology and Geology High-Frequency Time Series (SHIFT) campaign. The SHIFT campaign leveraged NASA's AVIRIS-NG facility instrument to collect approximately weekly VSWIR imagery across the study area enabling traceability analyses related to the science value of VSWIR revisit without relying on multispectral proxies. This campaign will generate precise, high-frequency data on plant communities collected over nearly 1,656 square kilometers across Santa Barbara County, California, US, and nearby coastal Pacific waters. AVIRIS-NG is a pushbroom spectral mapping system with high signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), designed and toleranced for high performance spectroscopy. AVIRIS-NG measures reflected radiance at 5-nm intervals in the Visible to Shortwave Infrared (VSWIR) spectral range from 380-2510 nm. The AVIRIS-NG sensor has a 1 milliradian instantaneous field of view, providing altitude dependent ground sampling distances from 20 m to sub-meter range. In this dataset, for each flight line, four file types are included: unrectified measured surface radiance image (rdn) files, geometric lookup table (glt), gridded files of input geometry (igm), and parameters relating to the geometry of observation and illumination rendered using the geometric lookup table (obs). The AVIRIS-NG L1B data are provided in ENVI binary format, which includes a flat binary file (bin) accompanied by a header (hdr) file holding metadata in text format.
