CEOS Instrument: Linear imaging Self Scanner - I

Agency: ISRO
Missions: IRS-1A
Status:No longer operational
Type:High resolution optical imager
Description:1b Provides data for: monitoring land use/ land cover, forest cover, coastal zones and wastelands; identification of prospective ground water zones; and crop acreage and production estimation for wheat, rice, sorghum, cotton, groundnut, tobacco, etc
Spatial Resolution: 72.5 m
Swath Width: 148 km
Wavebands: VIS: 0.46 - 0.52 ?m, 0.52 - 0.59 ?m, 0.62 - 0.68 ?m, NIR: 0.77 - 0.86 ?m
Technology: High resolution optical imager
Description: Imaging Vis/IR radiometer whose characteristics are stressed towards spatial resolution (typically <30 m). Spectral coverage in bands of Vis and NIR (0.4-1.3 Ám). Number of channels can be small (extreme: one, i.e. panchromatic) or very large (hyperspectral) separated in-field (array detectors) or by a spectrometer, or a combination of both. Channel bandwidths from 0.5 Ám (PAN) to 5 nm (hyperspectral). Applicable only in LEO.
