LANDSAT 4/5 TM Raw Products
Entry ID: LANDSAT.TM.RAW


Summary
Abstract: Landsat TM data are available from December 1982 to February 1983 (Landsat 4)
and from April 1984 onwards (Landsat 5). 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).

A Landsat 4 and 5 TM scene has an instantaneous field of view (IFOV) of 30
square meters in bands 1 through 5 and band 7, band 6 has an IFOV of 120 square
meters on the ground.

The resolution for the TM sensor is shown below:

---------------------
Resolution Landsats 4-5: (meters)
Band 1: 30
Band 2: 30
Band 3: 30
Band 4: 30
Band 5: 30
Band 6: 120
Band 7: 30

Landsat TM Raw data is available in a digital format for:

- Full scene: Full scenes cover approximately 183 x 172.8 km. 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.

- Quarter scene: ESA TM data (digital or photographic) is available in
quadrants, each measuring 91.5 x 86 km. This option is available for raw data,
system corrected or geocoded products. Numbering of standard quarter scenes is
as follows: for floating quarter scenes the placement along-path and
across-path is chosen by the customer. The centre of the floating quarter scene
is defined by latitude and longitude.

- Mini scenes: ESA TM data is available as images covering an area 47.2 x 44 km
(a 16th of a full scene). This option is available for raw data, system
corrected or geocoded products. The scenes are floating and the placement
along-path and across-path is chosen by the customer. The centre of the scene
is defined by latitude and longitude.
