The work presented in this thesis is focused on mineralogical studies of the Moon aiming to create maps of iron abundances. We used the data from visible to near-infrared (VISNIR) spectrometers on-board Chandrayaan-1 spacecraft, with our major concentration on the Spectrometer InfraRed-2 (SIR-2) data. The SIR-2 on-ground and in-flight calibrations are discussed. The location of the SIR-2 tracks on the imaging spectrometers, Moon Mineralogy Mapper (M3), and Hyper-Spectral Imager (HySI) is determined by comparing the radiance profiles of the three instruments measured at the same Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) and the same photometric conditions...
