The wavelength limits for std = "RS" and Landsat imagers have been taken from R package RStools and NASA and USGS documentation. They are defined simply as wavelength ranges without considering the spectral sensitivity of satellite intruments/cameras based on which remote sensing based indexes are usually calculated. The values for std = "ISO" are according to ISO 20473. The values for std = "CIE" are suggested values according to Wikipedia, and need verification.

IR(std = "ISO")

NIR(std = "ISO")

SWIR(std = "CIE")

IRB(std = "CIE")

SWIR1(std = "RS")

SWIR2(std = "RS")

MIR(std = "ISO")

IRC(std = "CIE")

FIR(std = "ISO")

TIR1(std = "RS")

TIR2(std = "RS")



character string, "ISO", "CIE", or Landsat imagers named "LandsatRBV", "LandsatMSS", etc., or "RS", for remote sensing wavebands as defined in the documentation of package 'RStoolbox'.


a waveband object wavelength defining a wavelength range.


The names NIR, SWIR and TIR are abbreviations of near infra-red, short-wave infra-red and thermal infra-red, respectively.
