The USGS Spectral Viewer tool helps users determine what bands of satellite sensors work best for image interpretation studies.

Users have the option to save the values of the selected spectra as a .txt file.
To simulate how a sensor detects a surface feature in a given spectral band, the feature's spectrum is "convolved" with the sensor's RSR. This is based on the average of the wavelength extents of the full width at half maximum values.
The Atmospheric Transmittance can be selected to help determine which bands are optimal.
