This paper reports the design and building of a spectral library of a selected tropical rainforest species in Malaysia. Several approaches to building the vegetation spectral library have been discussed. Spectral analysis were performed to the 37 vegetation species spectra and found that the vegetation spectra are very sensitive to environmental parameters such as leaf condition, vigorous and other physiological and biochemical parameters. The separability anlyses of each tree species in built spectral library was also conducted using three-best combination of narrow spectral window of 515.9 nm, 672 nm, 721.6 nm and 838.2 nm of all 512 bands generated. The implementation of a spectral library is crucial and varies on applications and the accuracy of the processing is much depends on the feature extraction techniques of hyperspectral data used.
