Corrección Atmosférica SENTINEL 2A / LANDSAT 8 (Método DOS1/CHAVEZ) SCP qGis

Corrección Atmosférica SENTINEL 2A / LANDSAT 8 (Método DOS1/CHAVEZ) SCP qGis

Como parte del pre-procesamiento de imágenes satelitales, la corrección atmosférica es un procedimiento que tiene como objetivo corregir el efecto de dispersión de energía electromagnética en las partículas de agua suspendidas en la atmósfera, permitiendo de esta manera, restar de la imagen los valores que éstas agregan a los datos de la imagen. El procedimiento usado es el conocido como ...
