Heat Capacity Mapping Mission Digital Source
Entry ID: hcmm_digital_source


Summary
Abstract: The HCMM Digital Source dataset includes approximately 2400 scenes of recovered digital data with a resolution of 100 dpi. The original scenes are 715 km wide and vary in length from 715 to 3,000 km. The file size is 3-13 MB depending on the length of the scene and is stored in a TIFF format. The source data was transmitted to seven ground stations and stored on binary magnetic tape. The source data on tape is no longer readable and the only remaining set of HCMM data is on black and white film.

Purpose: The Heat Capacity Mapping Mission (HCMM) was an experimental satellite program directed at observing thermal conditions on the Earth?s surface during the day and at night.
