Abstract

In 2006 the Italian and the Canadian Space Agencies started a collaboration to evaluate the feasibility of the Joint Hyperspectral Mission (JHM), a new mission for Earth Observation devoted to environmental applications. JHM was designed to operate with a 30 m resolution hyperspectral sensor able to collect 210 narrow spectral bands in the range of 400-2500 nm. This paper presents a study carried on for the Italian Space Agency during Phase A, aimed to suggest an optimal spectral setup for the land-cover key application. Just referring to the mapping of forest species, results on simulated JHM data suggested that an optimal configuration can be obtained using a 50 nm bandwidth.
