Data Access Data Format
Measurements and Applications Artificial intelligence visible, near-infrared and thermal-infrared hyperspectral instrument. Phisat-1 acquired an enormous number of images that allowed scientists to detect urban heat islands, monitor changes in vegetation and water quality, as well as carried out experiments on the role of evapotranspiration in climate change. However, some images were not suitable for use because of cloud cover. To avoid downlinking these less than perfect images back to Earth, the Ф-sat-1 artificial intelli
