Hyperspectral Data

The TERRA hyperspectral data pipeline processes imagery from hyperspectral camera, and ancillary metadata. The pipeline converts the "raw" ENVI-format imagery into netCDF4/HDF5 format with (currently) lossless compression that reduces their size by ~20%. The pipeline also adds suitable ancillary metadata to make the netCDF image files truly self-describing. At the end of the pipeline, the files are typically [ready for xxx]/[uploaded to yyy]/[zzz].


Software dependencies

The pipeline currently depends on three pre-requisites: _[_netCDF Operators (NCO)](http://nco.sf.net)_._ Python netCDF4.

Pipeline source code

Once the pre-requisite libraries above have been installed, the pipeline itself may be installed by checking-out the TERRAREF computing-pipeline repository. The relevant scripts for hyperspectral imagery are:


The pipeline works with input from any location (directories, files, or stdin). Supply the raw image filename(s) (e.g., meat_raw), and the pipeline derives the ancillary filename(s) from this (e.g., meat_raw.hdr, meat_metadata.json). When specifying a directory without a specifice filename, the pipeline processes all files with the suffix "_raw".

Run the Hyperspectral Pipeline

shterraref.sh -i ${DATA}/terraref/foo_raw -O ${DATA}/terrarefterraref.sh -I /projects/arpae/terraref/raw_data/lemnatec_field -O /projects/arpae/terraref/outputs/lemnatec_field
