ECOSTRESS Spectral Library - Version 1.0

Version 1.0 of the ECOSTRESS spectral library was released on February 2, 2018.   This release added over 1100 new vegetation and non-photosynthetic vegetation spectra.  The ECOSTRESS spectral library is a compilation of over 3400 spectra of natural and man made materials.  These libraries were developed as part of the ASTER and ECOSTRESS projects.


The ECOSTRESS spectral library includes data from three other spectral libraries:

  • Johns Hopkins University (JHU)
  • Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL)
  • United States Geological Survey (USGS - Reston)

If you use data from the ECOSTRESS spectral library in a publication we ask that you reference the following articles:
