Summary
Abstract: Most of the ESA archive has been acquired and processed at receiving stations
in Fucino (Italy), Kiruna (Sweden) and Maspalomas (Gran Canaria, Spain).
However, the archive contains also a substantial number of data acquired and
processed by receiving stations elsewhere (e.g. the US, Brasil, Canada, etc.).

Landsat MSS Raw CCT data contain data at 6 bits with none of the geometric and
radiometric corrections applied. The Ancillary Data Block (ACB) gives the exact
line length. The video data of different bands are registered at integer pixels
to account for detector layout geometry and multiplexer sampling lines. The
pixels (2 on the right and 2 on the left side of the image) corresponding to
geometrical locations not sampled by all detectors are still present on the
video data.

Landsat MSS Raw is available in a digital format for Full Scene. Landsat full
scene of imagery data correspond to an effective ground coverage area of
approximately 185 km wide by 185 km in along-track direction for Landsat 1,2,3
and 185 x 170 for Landsat 4 and 5. A standard full scene is nominally centred
on the intersection between a path and row (the actual image centre can vary by
up to 20 km). For a floating full scene the placement along the path is chosen
by the customer. The centre point of the floating full scene is defined by the
path number and the required latitude. A full image is composed of 6920 pixels
x 5760 lines and each band requires 40 Mbytes of storage space.
