Updated ASAR Image Mode Medium Resolution Mosaic of Italy41.8N 12.4E
This image of Italy is an ASAR Image Mode Medium Resolution Mosaic created with products acquired between January and July 2009.
These source images were generated starting from ENVISAT/Asar products, using the Chelys Satellite Rapid Response System.
They were then projected, orthorectified (with a NASA Digital Elevation Model of 3 arcseconds of resolution) and merged in this mosaic by Chelys MOSRI, a real time mosaic generation system, at the original resolution of 75 meters (0.000833 degrees per pixel).
The entire mosaic was generated in less than 1 minute. This is the latest version of the ASAR processing algorithm used by MOSRI which eliminates the banding effect created by merging the various original images.
