Radiometry Sites Resources

Radiometry test sites are core to any Quality Assurance/Quality Control (QA/QC) strategy. These sites can be useful for stability monitoring and are essential for vicarious absolute calibration campaigns. They provide a convenient means of obtaining information to verify sensor performance. Test sites are the only practical means of deriving knowledge on biases between sensors and they allow, at some level, a means of bridging anticipated data gaps caused by lack of measurement continuity, due to lack of co-existent in-flight sensors.

There are currently 47 Radiometric Sites and 4 Thermal Sites in the catalog. To view these sites, click on a continent below, or select a location from the Radiometric Site drop down box to the right.
