Graffiti for the Skys

NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab routinely uses Cuprite, Nevada as a testing and demonstration site for their plane-mounted hyperspectral sensor AVIRIS.

I’ve been working my way through the back-catalog of AVIRIS imagery, looking for a study site. I was kinda suprised when I saw this:

I guess somebody noticed all those planes and decided to give NASA something to look at.

Full sized image (a black&white preview of the actual data set), is here.
