Landsat 7 ETM/1G satellite imagery - Hawaiian Islands cloud-free mosaics

Metadata Updated: February 27, 2019

Cloud-free Landsat satellite imagery mosaics of the islands of the main 8 Hawaiian Islands (Hawaii, Maui, Kahoolawe, Lanai, Molokai, Oahu, Kauai and Niihau). Landsat 7 ETM (enhanced thematic mapper) is a polar orbiting 8 band multispectral satellite-borne sensor. The ETM+ instrument provides image data from eight spectral bands. The spatial resolution is 30 meters for the visible and near-infrared (bands 1-5 and 7). Resolution for the panchromatic (band 8) is 15 meters, and the thermal infrared (band 6) is 60 meters. The approximate scene size is 170 x 183 kilometers (106 x 115 miles). A Nadir-looking system, the sensor has provided continuous coverage since July 1999, with a 16-day repeat cycle. The Level 1G product is radiometrically and geometrically corrected (systematic) to the user-specified parameters including output map projection, image orientation, pixel grid-cell size, and resampling kernel. The correctional gorithms model the spacecraft and sensor using data generated by onboard computers during imaging. Sensor, focal plane, and detector alignment information provided by the Image Assessment System (IAS) in the Calibration Parameter File (CPF) is also used to improve the overall geometric fidelity. The resulting product is free from distortions related to the sensor (e.g., jitter, view angle effect), satellite (e.g., attitude deviations from nominal), and Earth (e.g., rotation, curvature). Residual error in the systematic L1G product is less than 250 meters (1 sigma) inflat areas at sea level. The systematic L1G correction process does not employ ground control or relief models to attain absolute geodetic accuracy.
