Overview

AVNIR-2 is a visible and near-infrared radiometer for observing land and coastal zones and provides better spatial resolution than ADEOS's AVNIR. It will be used to provide land coverage maps and land-use classification maps for monitoring regional environment. The instrument has a cross track pointing capability for disaster monitoring.
