The effects of spectral curvature (smile) on the co-registration of measured radiance spectra were analyzed for a dispersive imaging spectrometer. The spectra measured by the imaging spectrometer with spectral curvature were re-sampled using cubic spline Interpolation to mitigate the mis-registration of spectral radiance measurement. After correction, the co-registration of measured radiance spectra is distinctly improved.
