Abstract:

The primary objective of this research effort was to develop data-handling procedures to transform digital data collected by a Bendix 24-channel airborne sensor into radiance values and to produce images free of skew and reflectance geometry distortion. Data collected over the Chesapeake Bay area on 26 October 1972 and 22 April 1973 at approximately 3200 m and later recorded on computer-compatible tapes CCT were studied. Special attention was focused on data from the Rappahannock River. The scanner system, including the mechanics, optics, and electronics, is described with an explanation of data formatting on the NASA-generated CCT and the formatting required by existing U. S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station WES computer software and programs to handle remotely sensed data, specifically ERTS or LANDSAT CCT data.
