Summary
Abstract: The USGS Spectral Slider interactive tool developed by scientists at the USGS Earth Resources Observation and Science (EROS) assists to visualize how the bands, or channels, of different satellite sensors measure the intensity of the many wavelengths (colors) of light; this is called the relative spectral response (RSR). By overlaying the spectral curves from different features (spectra), the user can determine which bands of the selected sensor will work for your application.
