The acquisition of spectral reflectance factor image data in an outdoor environment is a challenging task, mostly due to nonstatic scene content and illumination. In this work, we propose a work-flow for this task using a commercial Bragg-grating-based hyperspectral imager that can capture the visible and near-infrared part of the light spectrum. To our knowledge, we are the first who use this technology for outdoor spectral reflectance factor imaging. The work-flow involves focus position and exposure time estimation, illumination scaling, and image registration, among other procedures. Most of them generally apply to hyperspectral imaging, while some are specific to a Bragg-grating-based hyperspectral imaging device when dealing with specific challenges in outdoor environments. We have conducted some experiments to evaluate the quality of the acquired image data and discussed some limitations of the technology for spectral imaging of outdoor scenes.
