Abstract

Methods of handling the output data from an Airborne Thematic Mapper system are discussed with particular reference to the Daedalus AADS 1268 scanner. The format of the data is described and methods of determining the various necessary corrections such as radiometric calibration, brightness temperature retrieval and atmospheric correction outlined using the thermal infrared band as the example.
