The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Earth Resources Observation and Science (EROS) Center are collaborating on the development of a Land Product Characterization System (LPCS).
One of the most fundamental characteristics of a SAR system is its frequency (or frequencies) of operation (i.e., the frequency of the radar electromagnetic pulse it emits and receives); radar frequencies range from 3 MHz to 300 GHz.
The Advanced Land Observing Satellite (ALOS) was launched on January 24, 2006 by the Japan Aerospace and Exploration Agency (JAXA) and was operational until May 12, 2011. ALOS captured 6.5 million scenes during its five years of operation.
The purpose of the future EROS User Group (EUG) will be three-fold:
- Provide operational users of EROS products and services with an opportunity and platform to discuss opinions, needs, and concerns in a structured and consistent manner;
- Provide EROS projects with a consistent platform for targeted communications and opportunity for direct feedback from the user community ...
The Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) collection provides high resolution remote sensing data for monitoring landscape and natural resource conditions over small project areas. Data types will vary by project. (2008-present)
USGS Earth Resources Observation and Science (EROS) Center provide tools that allow user to view, search, query, download, and utilize onlne interfaces for available remote sensing and geospatial data.
Landsat Level- 3 Fractional Snow Covered Area (fSCA) data contains an acquisition-based per-pixel snow cover fraction, an acquisition-based revised cloud mask for quality assessment, and a product metadata file.
Landsat Level-3 Burned Area (BA) contains two acquisition-based raster data products that represent burn classification and burn probability.
Landsat Level-3 Dynamic Surface Water Extent (DSWE) contains six acquisition-based raster data products pertaining to the existence and condition of surface water, as well as all intermediate bands used to produce DSWE.
USGS Emergency Response strives to ensure that the disaster response community has rapid access to timely, accurate, and relevant geospatial imagery, products, and services before, during, and after a disaster.
There are no restrictions on the use of data received from the U.S. Geological Survey's Earth Resources Observation and Science (EROS) Center or NASA's Land Processes Distributed Active Archive Center (LP DAAC), unless expressly identified prior to or at the time of receipt. Depending on the product source, we request that the following statements be used when citing, copying, or reprinting...
SRTM data have been enhanced to fill areas of missing data to provide more complete digital elevation data with a resolution of 1 arc-second for the United States and 3 arc-seconds for global coverage.
