Satellite Image Gallery

Most images on this CD-ROM are LANDSAT browse images, used to determine image quality and cloud cover. These images are subsampled at a ratio 16 to 1 and have an effective resolution of 480 meters (approximately 3/10 of a mile per pixel. JPEG image compression may degradesome images to less than the subsampled resolution. Full resolution images are 512X512 sections of Landsat scenes, with a ground resolution of 30 meters. A high quality JPEG image compression routine has been used on these images to minimize image quality degradation.
