Imaging spectroscopy – (IS) is becoming a major remote
sensing technique, not only internationally but also for
the Belgian technology and application developers. Since
an imaging spectrometer samples hundreds of narrow contiguous
spectral bands throughout the visible to short wave infrared
electromagnetic spectrum, it provides relevant input to
‘HyperTeach’, a joint project
of the Flemish Institute for Technological Research (VITO),
the Management Unit of the North Sea Mathematical Models
(MUMM), the Royal Museum for Central Africa (RMCA) and the
Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (K.U.Leuven) funded by the
Belgian Science Policy Office, aims at developing course
material to theoretically and practically introduce researchers
and policy-makers to the emerging field of Imaging Spectroscopy.
The project includes the organization of a Training course
in Imaging Spectroscopy.
