IRS-P6 AWiFS

AWiFS Data Products (IRS-P6.AWiFS.Data)


The Advanced Wide Field Sensor (AWiFS) camera is an improved version compared to the WiFS camera flown in IRS-1C/1D. AWiFS operates in four spectral bands identical to LISS-III, providing a spatial resolution of 56 m and covering a swath of 740 Km. To cover this wide swath, the AWiFS camera is split into two separate electrooptic modules, AWiFS-A and AWiFS-B.

The Data products are categorized as Standard and have a system level accuracy.

AWiFS Standard Products comprise Path/Row Based products, Shift Along Track product and Georeferenced products. Path/Row Based products are generated based on the referencing scheme of each sensor. Shift Along Track applies to those products covering a user's area of interest which falls in between two successive scenes of the same path, then the data can be supplied by sliding the scene in the along track direction. Georeferenced products are true north oriented products. These products are supplied on digital media only.

Standard Path/Row Based products cover an area of 370 x 370 km and are characterised by 3 or 4 Bands. Path/Row Based products comprise Raw, Radiometrically corrected and Geo referenced levels of corrections.
