Short summary
We have used a large database of multidirectional land surface reflectance measured from space, including polarization properties, to build a database of representative BRDFs and BPDFs. This database can be used to assess the variability in land surface reflectances, in particular their directional and polarization signatures, and to evaluate models. We have also built an interactive tool for an easy analysis of the database contents.
