Alabama Remote Sensing Archive Multispectral Imagery of Alabama from Landsat and SkylabEntry ID: ZZZ302
Abstract: Multispectral imagery of the state of Alabama is available from the
Geological Survey of Alabama for the time period of 1972-1984.
Imagery from the Landsat multispectral scanner (MSS) is available as
prints or transparencies for all bands (with selected color composites
avaliable) at an approximate scale of 1:1,000,000. MSS data is
... collected in four spectral bands ranging from 0.5 to 1.1 micrometer
with a ground resolution of about 80m.
Images available from Skylab 3 and 4 include 9 x 9 prints and
transparencies at 1:750,000 (skylab 3) and 1:500,000 (skylab 4).
These images were taken in 1973 and are along three tracks; northeast
from New Orleans, LA to South Carolina, northeast from Pensacola, FL
to Columbus, GA, and from Pearl River, Jackson MI to Pensacola, FL.
The multispectral photographic facility onboard Skylab provided
imagery in several wavelength bands ranging from 0.5 to 0.9
Micrometers. This camera system provided ground resolution of
approximately 40 m in visible wavelengths to 75 m in the infrared.
A variety of high and low altitude aircraft imagery of Alabama is also
available from the Geological Survey of Alabama. Microfiche images of
MSS/TM imagery of North America since 1986 (landsat browse imagery)
are also available. Similar imagery for other locations and time
periods is available from the Eros Data Center.
