WATER: Dataset of airborne WiDAS mission in the national observatory on climatology at Zhangye-Zhangye flight zone on Jun. 29, 2008 Chinese Version


The dataset of airborne WiDAS mission was obtained in the national observatory on climatology at Zhangye-Zhangye flight zone on Jun. 29, 2008.

Intra-band data available for general users include Level-2C data (after geometric, radiometric and atmospheric corrections), Level-1B browse image (after intra-band matching) and Level-2B browse image (after registration). The raw data, Level-1A, and data processing parameters were filed; applications would be evaluated prior to access. Data processing started in Aug. 2008 and ended in Apr. 2009, and in Nov. 2009, CCD data were reprocessed to adjust radiometric calibration.

The flying time of each route was as follows:

id flight relative height starttime endtime data size data state data quality ground targets
