Aircraft Ancillary Description
Quality Quality checks were performed throughout all processing steps. Minimum and maximum domain values were checked for each tile, for merged and mosaicked products. Map extents of separate tiles are correct. Overlaps between tiles are seamless and contain identical values; these were also spot checked for the Barrow Triangle area. Value-added layers and their ranges were quality checked; these ... View entire text
