IMAGE2007 European Coverage
Jan-2007



Coverage captured by the DMC constellation (UK-DMC, Beijing-1 and NigeriaSat-1). Images are derived from 32 m resolution optical images from the SLIM-6 instrument. The products avaliable are L1R: Band registered product derived from the L0R product, and L1T: Orthorectified product derived from the L1R product using manually collected GCPs from IMAGE2000 and SRTM DEM V3.1 data. Access is provided through the ESA TPM scheme. Read more
