Project description In the project HyCity, methods for city inventory taking from hyperspectral and LIDAR data are being developed. For this purpose an airborne hyperspectral scanner is used to perform high-resolution, spacial scans in the near infrared spectrum as well as in the visible electromagnetic spectrum. This project starts with the simultaneous recording of hyperspectral and LIDAR data, integrates the two different data sets into a three-dimensional, spacial data file and processes the spectral data necessary for the determination of the surface reflection values based on the surface shape that was recorded by LIDAR. To take inventory of the geodata that describes existing state-owned property, automatic methods are to be developed that make use of the great interpretation potential of spacial and spectral data used for geodata collection. This new method enables the extensive and detailed spacial collection of required geodata it a short period of time, as is required in practice today.
