Group: Summary

   This data set (NmIDCS3H) consists of daily, global image composites 
   constructed from Nimbus 3 Image Dissector Camera System (IDCS) imagery 
   captured from 23 April, 1969 - 20 January, 1970. Each composite is provided as 
   a set of three HDF5-formatted files: separate North and South Polar 
   projections in the 5 km Equal-Area Scalable Earth Grid (EASE-Grid) and an 
   equatorial projection in a 10 km equidistant grid for the region between 60 N 
   and 60 S. Browse images are also available.
