The data includes in-situ hyperspectral data that were used to evaluate image fusion products in space and time in a rice paddy landscape (Kong et al 2020).
It covers one 250 by 250 m MODIS pixel area where systematic sub-sampling was made. We collected near bi-weekly during the growing season in this large area. As it is hyperspectral data (400-900 nm), one can compute any vegetation indices in VNIR region.
Welcome to use this data!
