    DMC Multispectral Imager Orthorectified product
    (2134) recent views
    Last update: 14 August 2015

    Orthorectified product derived from the L1R product using manually collected GCPs from Landsat ETM+ data and SRTM DEM V3 data.

    The SRTM DEM V3 only covers the Earth's land mass between ±60° latitude. Where the acquired image exceeds ±60° latitude, orthorectification will be performed using the 1km GLOBE DEM supplied by NGDC.

    The L1T products are projected to UTM / WGS84 by default. However, it is possible to orthorectify DMC images to any projection using any reference and DEM datasets as supplied by the customer.
