Hyperspectral imagery was taken of four vehicles from a roof at the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) at various vehicle orientations in illumination conditions dominated by direct solar radiation in order to explore and model the in-scene bidirectional reflectance distribution functions (BRDFs) of 3D objects. The four vehicles were rotated and imaged through the span of six hours resulting in many combinations of vehicle orientation, source azimuth, and source zenith. In addition to the general sampling of vehicle BRDFs, three experiments were designed and executed in order to understand the contributions of vehicle shape, vehicle color, and background on the observed in-scene BRDFs.
