The purpose of this experiment is to determine the spectral separability of spring wheat and other cover types common to western North Dakota. These include: fallow, pasture, alfalfa, and winter wheat.
These data were collected as a part of the LACIE Field Measurements Project. More information can be found in the LACIE Field Measurements Project Plan, 1975-76, and in the LACIE Field Measurements Data Library Catalog, Volume II, 1976 crop year.
The calibration test took place in 1976.
The supporting docs include a brief summary of used instruments, a wavelength table (Wavelength_ASCII.txt), reflectance note and reflectance tables (ReflectanceTable206.txt and ReflectanceTableMulti.txt), and file format description (ExperimentDataFormat3.txt). The format description file is in ASCII format in lines of 80 characters.
This research dataset is part the Field Research Data Library that consists of over 200,000 spectral observations of soils and vegetation that have been collected since 1972 till 1991 as part of the research focused on vegetation and soils at the Laboratory for Applications of Remote Sensing (LARS) located at the Purdue University.
