DESCRIPTION

The full mission is covered, though with gaps outside of the ADEN zone:

  • Time window: from 2006-07-09 to 2011-03-31
  • Orbits: from 2425 to 24189
  • Path (corresponds to JAXA track number): from 1 to 668
  • Row (corresponds to JAXA scene centre frame number): from 55 to 7185.

Two different Level 1B product types (Panchromatic images in VIS-NIR bands, 2.5 m resolution at nadir) are offered, one for each available sensor mode:

  • PSM_OB1_11 -> composed of up to three views; Nadir, Forward and Backward at 35 km swath
  • PSM_OB2_11 -> composed of up to two views; Nadir view at 70 km width and Backward view at 35 km width.

All ALOS PRISM EO-SIP products have, at least, the Nadir view which is used for the frame number identification. All views are packaged together; each view, in CEOS format, is stored in a directory named according to the view ID according to the JAXA naming convention.
