USGS Spectroscopy Lab
Rocky Mountain National Park
studies of Rocky Mountain National Park include mapping of:
- Surficial mineralogy,
The current study and status:
- AVIRIS data acquired spring 1994
- One line down continental divide (10 km wide), including
bear and sand lake, up to north of trail ridge road.
- AVIRIS data acquired October 21, 1998
- North of Trail Ridge Road to southern edge of park (and further
south to Fairplay!).
- AVIRIS data currently being calibrated to surface reflectance.
- Mapping TBD.
- ER-2 high altitude IR photography acquired, and digital scanning (3.7-meter/pixel spatial
resolution) for all AVIRIS flight lines still to be done. Full
resolution images will be ~45 MBytes each. (See examples under our Arches N.P. page.)
