An overview of the physical principals of imaging spectrometry for detailed characterization of remote objects and of gas vapors is given. The terms multi-spectral, hyperspectral, and ultra-spectral are defined within the framework of applications and instrument system design approaches. History of the development of imaging spectrometers is reviewed. We are at the threshold of major commercial efforts for these instrument systems.
