Abstract dc.description.abstract This CORONA black and white satellite image covers an area extending from east of the River Wye in Wales to Droitwich, England. 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_1b, 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_1b) has about 10 to 20 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 area.
