Evaluating EO-1 Hyperion Data in Mapping Surficial Geology near Loiyangalani, Kenya
Submitted in partial fulfillment of the requirements for a Bachelor of Arts degree from Carleton College, my senior thesis was my first introduction to remote sensing. I analyzed a swath of land to the south of Lake Turkana in Kenya using EO-1 Hyperion hyperspectral imagery. Using a variety of per-pixel spectral signature analyses I compared the resulting classification with a geologic map of the region developed in the field by my professor and adviser. I then evaluated the ability of the hyperspectral sensor to provide plausible results.
