Analytical Imaging and Geophysics (AIG) periodically organizes airborne group shoots using various remote sensing instruments. These have included AVIRIS and HyMap imagers, covering various areas of north America. AIG can re-sell all images not purchased for private use. Data available for purchase range from 3-10m spatial resolution and can now be previewed and ordered on online. Click the "Order Data" button below to take you to that page.
The following are summaries of some of the group shoots performed to date:

1999 HyMap Group Shoot
1995 AVIRIS Group Shoot
During the summer of 1995, AIG arranged for the collection of NASA/JPL Airborne Visible/Infrared Imaging Spectrometer (AVIRIS) data on the behalf of commercial clients. AVIRIS collects data in 224 spectral bands providing spectral signatures at every image pixel and allowing detailed mapping of surface materials based on their spectroscopic characteristics. The group shoot gave commercial entities the opportunity to acquire high quality imaging spectrometer data for their selected sites.
AIG defined the clients' flight lines, arranged for their collection, received the data, an calibrated the data to reflectance. For clients that requested further processing, AIG used their specialized processing techniques to provide mineral and vegetation abundance maps, and supplied the clients with output maps and detailed reports. The 1995 AVIRIS Group Shoot provided an efficient means for organizations to share some of the costs and apparent risks of using a new technology while getting data specific to their needs.
