Join us for our next free webinar - Analyzing and Groundtruthing Soil Characteristics

August 23, 2016

Our 2016 webinar series focuses on one ASD spectroscopy application each month.

If you haven't watched each of our previous webinars, visit our webinar recordings page to see what you missed. Some of our past topics include: NIR, Metamorphic Petrology, and Remote Sensing, On-orbit Sensor Absolute Radiometric Calibration for Earth Remote Sensing, and Adventures in Albedo.

This September, our webinar focuses on the application of soil characteristics. 

In this webinar you will learn:

  • How (and why) water alters the spectral reflectance of soil
  • The importance of the location of water in the soil
  • Nutrient and organic matter analysis of soil
  • UAS sensor calibration using an ASD instrument
  • Groundtruthing a UAS sensor using an ASD instrument

Photos from Exelis' VISualize 2013 - Taking Measurements of Vegetation with a FieldSpec 4 Spectroradiometer

June 12, 2013

ASD's Remote Sensing expert Gary Fager demonstrates taking measurements of vegetation at the Exelis VISualize 2013 event in Washington DC. This hands-on demonstration was part of his presentation, "Ground truthing: Best Practices for Image Validation and Supervised Classification." In the pictures, Gary is using a FieldSpec 4 spectroradiometer and Illuminator reflectance lamp.

Landsat 8 Successfully Launches - Is Your FieldSpec 4 Ready?

February 11, 2013

NASA's Landsat Data Continuity Mission (LDCM) launched today from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California. A joint NASA and U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) mission, LDCM will add to the longest continuous data record of Earth's surface as viewed from space. LDCM is the eighth satellite in the Landsat series.

Pecora Turns 40, Looks to Future of Remote Sensing Applications; ASD is Exhibiting

November 09, 2011

ASD is excited to be a part of this year’s ASPRS 2011 Pecora 18 Conference and Symposium next week in Herndon, Va. This is the fortieth year of the conference, started by USGS and NASA as a way to exchange ideas and research concerning land remote sensing. The highlight of attending the conference is the ability to visit with remote sensing researchers to share ground truthing and field research and ideas.

An Insightful Visit from the RSL Team from University of Zurich

Top Tip: Caring for your Spectralon Reference Panel in the Field

June 15, 2011

As you head out in the field this summer to pursue your remote sensing research, it is important use a reference panel, often white, to perform real-time reflectance measurements and optimizing your ASD spectroradiometer response.

Hyperspectral Imaging the Focus June 2011 Photonics Spectra

June 13, 2011

This month’s cover story for Photonic Spectra magazine was written by ASD Inc. co-founder, Dr. Alexander Goetz. Titled “Measuring the Earth from Above: 30 years (and Counting) of Hyperspectral Imaging,” the article focuses on the development of hyperspectral technology and where the future of the market lies.
