This site contains hyperspectral image data. The images were acquired using a custom hyperspectral camera. The camera design is still evolving. A description of the initial camera design and characterization of its performance for digital camera simulation is presented in Vora et al . Further use of images of this sort for camera simulation are described in .
These images were acquired by myself and my colleagues. The image data are publicly available for research, teaching, and product development. If you use the images as part of published research, you should cite us just as you do when you use data from any other source. The appropriate general citation is:

The images on the individual pages were generally collected as part of specific research projects. Each page provides further suggestions for appropriate citations.
