CEOS Instrument: Wide Scan LISS III

Instrument:WS LISS III
Agency: ISRO
Type:High resolution optical imager
Description:For crops and vegetation dynamics, natural resources census, disaster management and large scale mapping of themes
Spatial Resolution: 23.5 m, 10 m
Swath Width: 700 km
Wavebands: 3 bands in VNIR and 1 band in SWIR
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.
