Data Product Specification Rev M (PDF). (and subsequent revisions)

This is the mission-final version of the Level 1 data with updated radiometric calibration. No prior versions of this data should be used.

  1. All calibration files for the life of the mission have been reprocessed using the best available calibration.
  2. Added two additional PGEs in order to improve overall co-registration including removal of the errors introduced by pointing changes in the DA camera.
  3. Fixed a bug associated with the orbit to orbit propagation method.
  • Stage 3 Validated:GRP_ELLIPSOID, GRP_TERRAIN
F03_0023 11/28/2004

Data Product Specification Rev L (PDF).

Removed RCCM algorithm to its own PGE. Rebuilt software on Irix 6.5.2 OS.

New ancillary files (Improved Radiometric Calibration):

  • ARP_INFLTCAL_F02_0010
 
F03_0022 02/04/2004

Data Product Specification Rev K (PDF).

Initiated orbit-to-orbit propagation of navigation corrections for the D-aft camera. Two bugs were fixed in Local Mode processing, involving oceanic island site failures and rare missing bands. The format version was incremented because of an overlooked change to NIR fieldnames in the version 0020 products. A new suite of ARP INFLT_CAL files containing a change to the MISR band-to-band calibration is in use.

 
F03_0021 12/08/2003 Version F03_0021 was removed from the archive because it contained radiometric errors.
Do not use!
 
F02_0020 09/24/2003

F02_0016 11/12/2002

Data Product Specification Rev G (PDF).

L0 data is pre-scanned to remove time errors and gaps. PSF (Point Spread Function Deconvolution) is performed in L1B1 to reduce the effects of scattering in the MISR filters. L1B2 files contain new parameters to support conversions of radiance to BRF. They also contain a new QA flag which warns users when the Terra orbit data is unreliable.
