VIIRS/JPSS1 Day/Night Band Resolution Terrain Corrected Geolocation L1 6-Min Swath 750 m

Metadata Updated: June 11, 2024

The VIIRS/JPSS1 Day/Night Band Resolution Terrain Corrected Geolocation 6-Min L1 Swath 750m product contains the derived line-of-sight (LOS) vectors for the single panchromatic Day-Night band (DNB). The geolocation algorithm uses a number of inputs that include an Earth ellipsoid, geoid, and a digital terrain model along with the SNPP platform’s ephemeris and attitude data, and knowledge of the VIIRS sensor and satellite geometry. It provides geodetic coordinates (latitude and longitude), and related parameters for each VIIRS L1 pixel. The VJ103DNB product includes geodetic latitude, longitude, surface height above the geoid, solar zenith and azimuth angles, lunar zenith and azimuth angles, sensor zenith and azimuth angles, land/water mask, moon illumination fraction and phase angle, and quality flag for every pixel location.
