The management and storage of spectroradiometer data are important issues, especially in regards of long-term use, data
quality and shareability. The SPECCHIO spectral database system developed at the Remote Sensing Laboratories (RSL)
provides a solution for the organized storage of spectral data and associated metadata and for the spectral processing
based on interactive, customizable and generic processing chains. Optimized data structures and graphical user interfaces
combined with intelligent file parsing routines enable the efficient entry of spectral data and metadata. The system can be
operated in a heterogeneous computing environment, offering multiuser access to a centralized database and enabling
easy data sharing within and even across research groups.
