Abstract. The purpose of this paper is to determine the possibility of using photometric measurements in order to correct imagery acquired in the 900–1700 nm range. This imagery is acquired for the purpose of acquiring spectral reflectance coefficients in variable lighting conditions. This paper will present a series of experiments, the problems encountered and obtained results. The main aim of this research was to determine a link between these two quantities (luminance and irradiance) in order to be able to eliminate the need of using such a spectroradiometer (a large, heavy and costly instrument) when acquiring spectral reflectance data from a XEVA XS-1.7.320 camera mounted on an UAV without using a reference panel.
