calibration data

In remote sensing, measurements pertaining to the spectral or geometric characteristics of a sensor or radiation source. calibration data are obtained through the use of a fixed energy source such as a calibration lamp, a temperature plate, or a geometric test pattern. The Application of calibration data to restore measurements to their true values is called rectification.
