Remarkable changes are currently observed in near-ground (<100 m) hyperspectral imaging. Platform liberalization (unmanned aerial vehicles, multi copters, terrestrial vehicles, hand-held tracking solutions, etc.) has been coupled with next generation spectral camera systems. Non-scanning or real-time imaging spectrometers can image randomly moving objects, dynamic processes, or make hyperspectral videos. After the snapshot spectral cameras have been miniaturized, a number of unmanned platforms were successfully tested for usability and applicability. Seeing the growing community around snapshot imaging spectroscopy, the first real time spectral imaging conference will be organized in Ulm, Germany.
Researchers from all disciplines are welcome! The application areas should primarily come from field-data coupled (out of the lab) or supporting areas (software & hardware prototyping), which are typically suited to agriculture, climate change, environment, precision farming, soil, vegetation and water spectroscopy, meteorology, etc.
