1 Access to near real time global visible and thermal band mosaics from NGDC Chris Elvidge and Edward H. Erwin, NOAA-NGDC Kimberly E. Baugh, Ara T. Howard, Benjamin T. Tuttle University of Colorado Cooperative Institute for Research in the Environmental Sciences (CIRES January 24, 2007

2 The U.S. Air Force Defense Meteorological Satellite Program (DMSP) Operational Linescan System (OLS) has a Unique capability to collect low-light imagery. Polar orbiting 3000 km swath 2.7 km ground sample distance (GSD) Two spectral bands: visible and thermal Nightly global coverage Flown since 1972 Will continue till ~2012 Visible Thermal

3 NGDCs Near Real Time Processing and Delivery System for DMSP-OLS Data
