The U.S. Geological Survey, Imaging Spectroscopy Group is currently mapping in many places on the Earth. We are using Imaging Spectroscopy to map:

The image here is of the San Juan Mtns of Colorado. by Roger N. Clark

We are accomplishing the above goals using diagnostic spectral features to identify specific molecular absorption bands in the spectra of surficial materials. Currently, we are using the NASA Airborne Visual and Infra-Red Imaging Spectrometer (AVIRIS) and other systems for our mapping.
