EnMAP Flight campaign data available for download

We are happy to announce that the first datasets published in the context of the EnMAP preparatory flight campaigns series are available for download now. Several hyperspectral airborne flight surveys have been carried out to support method and application development in the prelaunch phase. A metadata base provides an overview of the campaigns, information about recorded airborne hyperspectral data sets and other data associated to the respective campaigns like field and laboratory measurements, as well as availability of simulated EnMAP and Sentinel-2 data. In addition, all datasets are accompanied by a report describing in detail how the data were acquired and (pre)processed. The datasets are provided free of charge for scientific purposes under a Creative Commons Licence CC BY-SA 4.0 Unported Licence.

New Scientific Principal Investigator of the EnMAP mission

Prof. Hermann Kaufmann (GFZ) retires after a successful career as one of the world-wide leading experts in the field of hyperspectral remote sensing. He initiated the spaceborne hyperspectral satellite mission EnMAP and became the Scientific Principal Investigator of this long-term research and development program. Since October, 2014, Prof. Luis Guanter succeeds Prof. Hermann Kaufmann and takes up the position as the new Scientific Principal investigator.

EnMAP-Box 2.0 now available!

New EnMAP-Box features are:

  • a redesigned GUI with better visualization and an intuitive organisation of image and spectral views
  • a GIS-like labeling tool for defining ROIs (regions of interest) on images or SOIs (spectra of interest) on spectral libraries
  • import/export filters to shapefile and ENVI format for labeling tool
  • spectral view for simulatenous collection and visualization of spectra with diverse wavelengths settings
  • fast visualization of spatially large images through optional calculation of pyramid layers

Available for free download on EnMAP-Box
