AbstractAs part of a project to explore methods for identifying uranium mining and related activities from a satellite platform, imagery of a uranium mine site in Northern Saskatchewan was acquired in August 2000 with an airborne Short Wave Infra Red imaging spectrometer. Radiance data converted to reflectances using MODTRAN4 radiative transfer code, were analysed via a constrained linear unmixing technique, using end members extracted from the scene in an automated process. Selected end member spectra and their corresponding fraction images are presented. A vicarious calibration procedure used to calibrate the airborne imaging spectrometer is described.
