WATER: Dataset of ground truth measurements synchronizing with PROBA CHRIS in the Biandukou foci experimental area on Jul. 18, 2008 Chinese Version


The dataset of ground truth measurements synchronizing with PROBA CHRIS was obtained in 21 quadrates of the Biandukou foci experimental area on Jul. 18, 2008. Observation items included:

(1) GPS by GARMIN GPS 76;

(2) species by manual cognition;

(3) the plant number by manual work,

(4) the height by the measuring tape repeated 4-5 times,

(5) the chlorophyll content by SPAD 502;

(6) the coverage by manual work;

(7) photo taking by Nikon D80 with a lens of Sigma 8mm F3.5 EX DG CIRCULAR FISHEYE, shooting straight downwards at the height of 1.5m; original photos were in JPG format and the processed data in Excel format.

(8) the biomass (samples over 0.5m×0.5m) by wet weight and dry weight; as Excel files.
