Description: MISR's Homepage.

Description: The Multi-angle Imaging SpectroRadiometer (MISR) was successfully launched into
sun-synchronous polar orbit aboard Terra, NASA's first Earth Observing System
(EOS) spacecraft, on December 18, 1999. MISR measurements are designed to
improve our understanding of the Earth's environment and climate.

Viewing the sunlit Earth simultaneously at nine widely-spaced angles, MISR
provides radiometrically and geometrically calibrated images in four spectral
bands at each of the angles. Spatial sampling of 275 and 1100 meters is
provided on a global basis. The MISR instrument orbits the Earth about 15 times
each day. There are 233 distinct orbits which are repeated every 16 days. These
233 repeating orbits are called paths,and since the paths overlap, near global
coverage is obtained in 9 days

The MISR data products are available in HDF-EOS format.
