During an event on October at the Italian Pavillon at  Expo2020Dubai, researchers from the University of Pavia, Napoli Parthenope and CNR-IREA presented cutting edge EarthObservation technologies based on radar and multi- and hyperspectral sensors. Among these, methodologies aimed at recognizing the presence, type and abundance of particular construction materials were presented: https://lnkd.in/eGQxH2Mn

This web app was developed by David Marzi from our lab using GoogleEarthEngine, you will be able to see color composites, investigate abundance maps of the main construction materials that are used in the urban area of Dubai (e.g., concrete and metals) and inspect some interesting vegetation indices (e.g., NDVI and #EVI), just by clicking on the different layers in the interactive panel. Finally, if you click wherever you like in the City, you will be able to see in real time the spectral signature of the clicked location, generated based on the hyperspectral data from the Italian mission PRISMA.

Give it a try, and enjoy the spectral exploration of Dubai ;-)
