Geometric calibration and radiometric correction of the MAIA Multispectral Camera

As a result of the Conference “Frontiers in Spectral imaging and 3D Technologies for Geospatial Solutions” that took place in Jyväskylä, Finland, on 25-27 October 2017, a paper has been discussed, published and scientifically reviewed. The title of the article is “Geometric calibration and radiometric correction of the MAIA Multispectral Camera” and it is published on “The International Archives of the Photogrammetry, Remote Sensing and Spatial Information Sciences, Volume XLII-3/W3, 2017”.  This article has been peer-reviewed.

Multispectral imaging is a widely used remote sensing technique, whose applications range from agriculture to environmental monitoring, from food quality check to cultural heritage diagnostic. A variety of multispectral imaging sensors are available on the market, many of them designed to be mounted on different platform, especially small drones. This work focuses on the geometric and radiometric characterization of a brand-new, lightweight, low-cost multispectral camera called MAIA. The MAIA camera is equipped with nine sensors, allowing for the acquisition of images in the visible and near infrared parts of the electromagnetic spectrum.
