Mining and Geological Mapping
UIZ typically uses aerial imagery acquired from hyperspectral and multispectral imaging sensors such as Landsat, ASTER, AVIRIS, and Hyperion for geological surveys, alteration zones mapping, and geomorphology applications. Satellite imagery carefully correlated with ground truth data is also used to assess changes due to natural events such as volcanic eruptions, floods, and earthquakes. The important aspects of these research based studies are supported by ground truth data collected with field portable spectroradiometers.
