Hyperspectral data collected from airborne platforms and Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) with accompanying water quality measurements – Lake Erie, Conestogo Lake, and Buffalo Pound Lake

This dataset includes hyperspectral imagery collected over Lake Erie, Conestogo Lake, and Buffalo Pound Lake. The imagery of Lake Erie and Conestogo Lake was collected with airborne hyperspectral systems from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) or Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC). Images were also collected with an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) (DJI Matrice600 Pro with Headwall Nano-hyperspec sensor). The imagery collected over Buffalo Pound Lake was with a UAV (DJI Matrice600 Pro with Corning microSHARK HSI sensor). UAV data was processed with proprietary software provided the hyperspectral instrument retailer. At or near the time of the acquisition, a field team in a boat measured biogeochemical variables in the water body for comparison with remote sensing data. These included water quality parameters, such as chlorophyll-a, suspended matters, dissolved organic carbon concentrations, and water turbidity.
