Presenters: Dr. Brian Curtiss (ASD Inc.) and A. Yucel Erbay (NIK Ltd.)

ASD Spectroradiometer Training Course for Remote Sensing Applications (registration form).

Overview of Application   ASD_NIK_FS_RS_training

  • Geology
  • Mineral Exploration
  • Forestry and Agriculture
  • Ecology and Vegatation Biochemistry

Spectroscopy of Vegetation: This section provides details on how the biochemistry and structure (architecture) of vegetation controls the observed spectral characteristics.

Spectroscopy of Rocks, Minerals & Soils: This section provides details on the spectroscopy of rocks, minerals and soils.

Chemometrics and Quantitative Spectroscopy: This section provides an overview of chemometrics and how it is used to develop quantitative calibrations. Several examples are presented. This section does not provide detailed training on how to use such chemometrics packages as Grams and Unscrambler.

Field Spectroscopy Methods: This section provides and overview of field spectroscopy and covers the methods used to collect spectra in the field. The section covers how to plan a field collection campaign and emphasizes techniques that result in high quality field spectra.

Image Analysis and Spectral Libraries: This section provides and overview how to build and application specific spectral library and how such a library would be used to analyze images using the image processing software packages such as the ERDAS IMAGINE Spectral Analysis module. This section is not intended to replace formal training for the ERDAS IMAGINE image processing, but provides the information necessary to successfully import and utilize field spectra in the image analysis process.

Instrumentation and Accessories: This section covers the range of ASD’s instruments and accessories, presents the design characteristics of the basic components of the spectrometer system, discusses how to select the correct configuration for a given application, and some points on how ASD characterizes instrument performance.

Care and Use of the ASD FieldSpec system: This section is a hands-on demo of: proper methods for unpacking and packing the instrument; adjusting the instrument carrier to the individual user; running and operating the RS3 software; and using the system to collect spectra. The later part of the demo (RS3 software operation and data collection) will be conducted with the FieldSpec3’s controlling computer connected to the LCD projector so that all participants may view the process.

Hands-on In-the-Field Demo of the ASD FieldSpec system:
During this section, each participant will get an opportunity to use the FieldSpec3 system to collect spectra in a field setting. Emphasis will be placed on proper measurement procedures as well as correct care and use of the instrument.
