NOAA JPSS Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) Imagery (not Near Constant Contrast) Environmental Data Record (EDR) from IDPS

Metadata Updated: February 27, 2019

This dataset contains a high quality operational Environmental Data Record (EDR) from the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) instrument onboard the Suomi-NPP satellite since February 2012. The dataset is produced by the NOAA Satellite and Information Service (NESDIS), and is an EDR of Imagery from all 5 I-bands and 6 of the 16 M-bands. It is important to note however that only the I-band EDR Imagery is archived in CLASS, the M-band EDR Imagery is not. The VIIRS Imagery EDR provides I-band imagery at a spatial resolution of 375 m at nadir, and 750 m at the edge of the swath (EOS). The M-band EDR Imagery spatial resolution is 750 m at nadir, and 1.5 km at the edge of swath (EOS). By default, IDPS VIIRS Imagery obtained from the Comprehensive Large-Array Stewardship System (CLASS) are distributed in four aggregated 86-second granules in Hierarchical Data Format v.5 (HDF5) with metadata attributes included.
