The toolbox can import spectra acquired on spectroradiometers manufactured by Analytical Spectral Devices (ASD), Spectra Vista Corporation (SVC), Ocean Optics and the Field Spectroscopy Facility (FSF). It can post process spectra to calculate spectral reflectance, radiance and irradiance. It also provides functions for spectral smoothing with a Savitzky-Golay filter and the removal of the spectral regions dominated by water absorption. Field spectra may be compared with measurements made by satellite or airborne instruments by convolving the field spectra with the relative spectral response functions (bands) of these instruments.
The toolbox was developed by Iain Robinson and Alasdair MacArthur at the Field Spectroscopy Facility in Edinburgh. This work is supported by the Natural Environment Research Council.
