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. To order data please see http://earth.esa.int/helpandmail/help_order.html
