During the summers of 1985 and 1986 a Programmable Multispectral Imager (PMI), also known as the Fluorescence Line Imager (FLI), has been used to collect airborne data over a number of forested targets in Canada and the United States. The sites were selected on the basis of suspected localized vegetation stress due to possible excess metal uptake or reported regional forest decline due to suspected acid deposition damage. This paper focuses on the characteristics of the spectral/image data available from this new sensor along with results of preliminary analysis of some of these data. Stable pixel to pixel vegetation spectral properties provide a verification of sensor calibration methods. Comparison of FLI vegetation spectra with ground-based spectra of vegetation samples show good correspondence for a variety of species studied, including spectral properties of the red edge.
