Features:

JRA2 - HYQUAPRO (EUFAR FP7 2008-2013) aims at the development of quality layers for airborne hyperspectral imagery and data products thus improving user-confidence and the wider utility of hyperspectral datasets. The HYQUAPRO objectives are:

  • to develop quality indicators and quality layers for airborne hyperspectral imagery
  • to develop quality indicators and quality layers for higher level data products
  • to implement and to test quality layers in existing processing chains of airborne hyperspectral imagery
  • to develop higher performing water and soil algorithms as demonstrators for end-to-end processing chains with harmonised quality measures.

The PML inherent optical property model has been updated to include optical water types with considerable improvements in retrieval of the absorption (in terms of RMSE). The backscatter was also improved but to a lesser extent in RMSE. The algorithm has now been optimised resulting in a significant improvement in processing time (a factor of 23 faster). The IOP model, together with the other water quality algorithms, has been provided for in the EUFAR algorithm toolbox and is now freely available.

 Those algorithms will be integrated in EGADS.
