DOS3 atmospheric correction in IMAGINE

Transforming the satellite image grey values into various absolute physical units (radiance, reflectance) are tasks that more and more people are aiming to fulfil nowadays. There have not been easy processes for e.g. IMAGINE users etc. to turn Landsat data into ground reflectances. We made a process for that with GUI. The image-based Dark Object Subtraction method needs no external atmospheric data. We found and corrected several errors in the data documentation and processes created by others. COST is a general approach many are trying to implement themselves, and all are making the same mistakes. DOS3 is better than COST.
