PALSAR 10m Mosaic Data Download Page

Three samples of the 10-meter resolution*1 PALSAR mosaic data (RAW data) and the corresponding forest/non-forest distribution can be downloaded by clicking the given FTP site. All these data are processed for the geometric correction*2 and radiometric correction*3. The observation mode is FBD(HH,HV) and the off-nadir angle is 34.3 degrees. The data covers one-degree square area which is shown in the red rectangle of the following figures.

*1 Mosaic data are projected onto the equi-latitude and longitude coordinates and the spatial resolution of 10m corresponds to nearly 0.323 sec.
*2 geometric correction means the ortho-rectification.
*3 radiometric correction means the radiometric slope correction that reduces the intensity variance caused by the topography.
