Supplemental Reading - Image Classification note by Dr. Klein. This is a *very* rough document which I originally wrote as lecture notes for my Digital Image Processing class, but may help flush out some points note in the slides. The notes do not contain a detailed discussion of maximum likelihood classifiers
The Spectrometer we will be using is from ASD inc. You might wish to check out their website and their support section for documentation on the FieldSpec Pro spectrometer we are using in this class.
The book by McCoy, R.M. 2005. Field Methods in Remote Sensing. New York: The Guildford Press. Chapters has quite useful information on taking spectral measurements in the field in chapter 4 & 7. Some of the book may be available online at books.google.com or it can be obtained from the A&M library.
