Interpretive Summary: Hyperspectral imaging systems offer new opportunities for better differentiation and estimation of biophysical attributes of interest for a variety of remote sensing applications. This paper describes a hyperspectral imaging system that can capture images from 32 to 1024 narrow wavelength bands in the visible to near-infrared spectral regions. Two approaches are also presented in the paper to correct geometric distortions of hyperspectral imagery. This hyperspectral imaging system can be a useful remote sensing tool as the trend toward increased use of cost-effective airborne hyperspectral sensors continues.
