Multispectral band integer values

When I processed an RGB dataset, I got reflectance values between 0-255 for each band. When I did a multispectral dataset, my reflectance values vary from 0.001 to 1.16. The software I’m using these images with requires the integer-format band values. What is the setting that I’m missing here?

Hi,

The situation that you are mentioning is normal. RGB is a 8 bit image type and its value ranges from 0- 255. However, in case of reflectance map it should be in the range you are getting and they are not in integer format.

Best,

RGB ortho images are 8-bit unsigned. Reflectance maps are 32-bit float.

Correct
