Radiative transfer simulation
Synthetic image generation, March 20, 2021
For the simulation of synthetic imagery, especially imaging spectroscopy data cubes, we are pleased to announce RenderJay, a new module for the Julia ecosystem.
Daily bi-hemispherical reflectance in the near-infrared, March 20, 2021
Check out our daily MODIS albedo product. This product comes with associated confidence intervals and we have derived a suite of vegetation products from it, using the Joint Research Centre's Two-Stream Inversion package. Contact us for data availability for your area of interest!
Daily JRC-TIP eLAI, March 22, 2021
The effective Leaf Area Index using the Joint Research Centre's Two-Stream Inversion package, that we rewrote in Julia, enabling the use of Julia's handy auto-derivation tools for fast optimization. Contact us for data availability and any further details that you may be interested in.
Generating virtual landscapes
A small Python functionality to generate pleasing landscape patterns, March 23, 2021
To advance the study of spectral mixing and the potential of imaging spectroscopy to assess biodiversity, we developed a small yet handy landscape generator that produces species compositions on a two-dimensional map, including understorey and overstorey vegetation. You can find an application in our recent paper in Remote Sensing of Environment (https://doi.org/10.1016/j.rse.2021.112405) and we will release this code on GitHub soon. In the meantime, please, contact us if you are interested.
