THE CEOS DATABASE : Missions, Instruments and Measurements
CEOS EO HANDBOOK – INSTRUMENT SUMMARY - WFI-2 (Amazonia-1) -
Full Name Wide Field Imager-2 (Amazonia-1) Status Approved
Instrument Agencies INPE Maturity
Instrument Type Imaging multi-spectral radiometers (vis/IR) Geometry Nadir-viewing
Instrument Technology Multi-purpose imaging Vis/IR radiometer Sampling Imaging
Data Access Open Access Data Format GEOTIFF
Measurements and Applications Used for fire extent detection measurement, coastal and vegetation monitoring, land cover and land use mapping. WFI-2 (Amazonia-1) is the same instrument as WFI-2 (CBERS), however due differences in orbital altitude, they have different spatial resolutions.
