Abstract

Automated multispectral band selection facilitates access to meteorological information in satellite images. Computed quickly and automatically, multispectral band triplets having the least interband redundancy produce vivid color displays bearing the highest information potential. Results from a 12-band multispectral data set collected in spring near Bridgeport, California show that a combination of near-infrared (0.91 - 1.05 μm), shortwave infrared (2.08 - 2.35 μm) and longwave infrared (8.5 - 14.0 μm) produces minimum interband redundancy. The automated method, which features simple manipulations of the spectral band correlation matrices, appears to be computationally robust and adaptable to changes in image scenery.
