    MOS-1/1B ESA Orthorectified Map-oriented Products [MES_GEC_1P]

    The ESA Orthorectified Map-oriented (Level 1) Products collection is composed of MOS-1/1B MESSR (Multi-spectral Electronic Self-Scanning Radiometer) data products generated as part of the MOS Bulk Processing Campaign using the MOS Processor v3.02. The products are available in GeoTIFF format and disseminated within EO-SIP packaging. Please refer to the MOS Product Format Specification for further details. The collection consists of data products of the following type: MES_GEC_1P: Geocoded Ellipsoid GCP Corrected Level 1 MOS-1/1B MESSR products which are the default products generated by the MOS MESSR processor in all cases (where possible), with usage of the latest set of Landsat improved GCP (Ground Control Points). These are orthorectified map-oriented products, corresponding to the old MOS-1/1B MES_ORT_1P products with geolocation improvements. MESSR Instrument Characteristics Band Wavelength Range (nm) Spatial Resolution (m) Swath Width (km) 1 (VIS) 510 – 690 50 100 2 (VIS) 610 – 690 50 100 3 (NIR) 720 – 800 50 100 4 (NIR) 800 – 1100 50 100

    MOS-1/1B ESA System Corrected Map-oriented Products [MES_GES_1P]

    The ESA System Corrected Map-oriented (Level 1) Products collection is composed of MOS-1/1B MESSR (Multi-spectral Electronic Self-Scanning Radiometer) data products generated as part of the MOS Bulk Processing Campaign using the MOS Processor v3.02. The products are available in GeoTIFF format and disseminated within EO-SIP packaging. Please refer to the MOS Product Format Specification for further details. The collection consists of data products of the following type: MES_GES_1P: Geocoded Ellipsoid System Corrected Level 1 MOS-1/1B MESSR products as generated by the MOS MESSR processor where the generation of MES_GEC_1P products is not possible. These replace the old MES_SYC_1P products. MESSR Instrument Characteristics Band Wavelength Range (nm) Spatial Resolution (m) Swath Width (km) 1 (VIS) 510 – 690 50 100 2 (VIS) 610 – 690 50 100 3 (NIR) 720 – 800 50 100 4 (NIR) 800 – 1100 50 100
