Abstract:

This report describes data collected during one of a series of NRL remote sensing and calibration and validation CalVal campaigns, undertaken to develop models of coastal environments for use in rapidly processing hyperspectral imagery HSI and generating shallow water bathymetric charts and trafficability maps. This report describes data collected during the Hawaii-Hyperspectral Airborne Remote Environmental Sensing HIHARES09 experiment conducted at Marine Corps Base Hawaii and Marine Corps Training Area-Bellows from January 21 to February 6, 2009. Airborne HSI from the HyMapTM sensor was collected over these sites and adjacent areas in conjunction with NRL CalVal activities that sampled spectral and geotechnical data for the development and validation of trafficability, shallow water bathymetry, and vegetation maps appropriate to this coralline coast type. Trafficability maps and shallow water bathymetry maps were derived for HIHARES09 study sites preparatory to an experiment at Shoalwater Bay, Australia, to support the development of imagery-derived trafficability maps for exercise TALISMAN SABER 09.
