Minimize AVNIR-2

The Advanced Visible and Near Infrared Radiometer type 2 (AVNIR-2) is a visible and near infrared radiometer for observing land and coastal zones. It provides better spatial land-coverage maps and land-use classification maps for monitoring regional environments. More information / documentation (e.g. the ALOS User Handbook) on the AVNIR-2 is available from the JAXA webpage.
