What can we do with hyperspectral data?

How hyperspectral data is reduced to multispectral data for use in vegetative indices such as NDVI.

Hyperspectral data is useful, but the sheer amount of data can be difficult to work with.

This video explains how often the data is reduced to specific important wavelengths and combined to make vegetative indices at every pixel, giving useful scientific information about the plant material pictured. In particular, NDVI is often used to measure the health of plants in remote sensing applications.
