Summary
Abstract: The Japan Weather Association (JWA) has been providing satellite data
services for NOAA AVHRR daily images since 1984. During data
processing, HRPT data is generated with in-flight calibration and
additional processed with geometric correction. Geometric correction
is applied to three areas. The first covers all of Japan including
the neighboring seas, and the spatial resolution is about 2.5 km. The
second covers east Japan, and the third does west Japan. These two
areas are provided for land users chiefly, and the spatial resolution
is about 1.3 km. JWA has provided AVHRR data by floppy disk and
magnetic tape (1/2 inch, 8mm DAT).Recently, JWA started to provide
distribution of AVHRR images through value added networks.
