Possibility to import spectral signatures in order to be able to use them in image analysis, classification, etc.. And the possibility to export spectral signatures
First of all, I want to say I really appreciate MultiSpec! A great application that is not only good for educational purposes but to also conduct research with. It is light weight so easy on the computer resources and through its user friendly and easy to learn GUI separates the user from the complex algorithms used to conduct clustering, classification, etc. Great tool to analyze hyperspectral images with. Great effort by Dr Biehl and Dr. Landgrebe.
I don't know the ins and outs of MultiSpec completely -nor of the algorithms, etc.- but what I think would be perhaps useful is a function to import spectral signatures from a range of sources and formats (such as the USGS spectral libary, ECOSTRESS library -formerly known as ASTER, .csv, etc.) and be able to use these signatures in image analysis and classification. I think it would also be useful to be able to export spectral signatures in a range of formats including .csv so they can be loaded in other applications.
I assume that this is quite a daunting task to programme but for me it would be useful functionality.
Thank you and kind regards,
