Full Name Wide Field Imager (Amazonia-1) Status Operational
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 (Amazonia-1) is the same instrument as WFI (CBERS), however due to differences in orbital altitude, they have different spatial resolution
