In the case of DN's (Digital Numbers) "rescaling" is not a simple transformation but, represents converting DN's to reflectance, representing a 0-1 floating point. Take a look at the landsat handbook or here for the equations for converting DN to reflectance. For reflectance that is stored in a 16 bit range, you apply a scaling factor to return the ...


There is no Math prefix in an expression. It's just log(n).


Landsat atmospheric correction and surface reflectance retrieval algorithms are not ideal for water bodies due to the inherently low surface reflectance of water. Similarly, surface reflectance values greater than 1.0 can be encountered over bright targets such as snow and playas. These are known computational artifacts in the Landsat surface reflectance ...
