Auto-Navigated, Calibrated, Geocoded NOAA_AVHRR data for Central EuropeEntry ID: DFD-NOAA_AVHRR_CE
Abstract: The available data set comprises NDVI data of Central Europe derived from
NOAA-AVHRR and browse products; on-line access is offered by means of the
Intelligent Satellite Data Information System ISIS, a service of the DFD
within DLR at Oberpfaffenhofen, Germany. These regularly produced CE data are
DFD pathfinder products. The images consist of 5 ... bands; the data are 8-bit
reduced, pre-launch calibrated and geocoded.
The projection type is Mercator with Center Latitude 50.4 N and Center
Longitude 10 E. Georeferencing of the image data is performed automatically by
means of coastline-, borderline- and grid data from the World Data Base 2.
The Interpolation Method is Nearest Neighbor. All datasets have the size of
1350 lines * 1135 columns; 15.3 MByte. Pixel Size for the images is 1.0 km
* 1.0 km.
The products aere computed daily, using the maximum elevation afternoon pass.
Used data format is VFF Raster Standard Format; for Quicklooks it is
Via ISIS it is possible to copy the data online; the data are then compressed
For further information look at the `infoboard` on ISIS.
Access to the data:
On-line access to data and information is provided by the Intelligent Satellite
Data Information System ISIS, developed by DLR as a client / server
configuration. It is representing the interface of DLR-DFD to users, providing
an easy access to catalogue-, inventory-, browse- and general textual
The URl is: http://www.dlr.de/caf/.
Relevant procedures to access this system are described in a separate entry
in the catagory `Data Center` and may be queried by interested people. Access
presumes the installation of the client configuration which can be easily done
by the user on his computer configuration.
