Lineage dc.description This image was cropped to remove scanned negative border, and then geo-referenced in ArcGIS 9.3 using vector data from Digimap OpenStream. This CORONA satellite image was made available from the U.S. Geological Survey.
Abstract dc.description.abstract This CORONA panchromatic satellite image covers an area extending from , Wales. The ground resolution is between 2 to 3 metres. The dataset also includes a screenshot showing image footprint, which corresponds to the full extent of the captured images. There are four image segments associated with this footprint (DS1104-1043DF001_1a, DS1104-1043DF001_1c and DS1104-1043DF001_1d). The image file ending in '1a' has not been processed as there is 90 percent cloud cover associated with that image. This image (DS1104-1043DF001_1c) has about 5 percent cloud cover. Please note that the spatial accuracy is not reliable and may need to be geo-referenced again, though this was done to situate the image over the corresponding ground area. Users of this image will be able to identify areas using built environments and features of the physical landscape.
