This overview represents a preamble step for developing an approach for mapping individual oil palm trees from
airborne hyperspectral imaging. The study generally describes airborne hyperspectral sensors in different fields
particularly in agriculture by comparing and analyzing their uniqueness for different applications. The emphasis is on
the image processing in identifying and mapping of the individual oil palm trees with the utilization of image
histogram to examine the RGB bands. An algorithm is design to discover the involvement of different materials in a
single mixed pixel and converting it into a pure pixel. The techniques employ in this connection are Linear Spectral
Mixture Analysis (LSMA), Mix to Pure Converter (MPC) and Euclidean Norm.
