Hyperspectral and multispectral imaging (HSI and MSI, respectively) are well-known imaging techniques that have their origin in remote sensing. Nevertheless, the versatility of having a camera with the integration of a spectrometer for each pixel has profited many other branches of science and industry. Nowadays they are used in precision agriculture, pharmaceutical production, artworks, biochemistry, etc. There are several fields in which their implementation is still growing and being adapted to the requirements of the field. This chapter will review some of them, such as their implementation in waste sorting, forensic sciences, archaeology, or entomology. Of course, there are many other fields of expertise taking benefits from HSI and MSI. These are just some examples of unusual applications of HSI and MSI where we believe that there is still a vast potential for growth.
