Group: Summary

   The Declassified Intelligence Satellite Photographs (DISP) Yearly Satellite 
   Photographic Mosaics of Greenland are composites of black-and-white 
   photographs of Greenland taken from American satellites in 1962 and 1963. The 
   mosaics provide details of ice sheet morphology, glaciers, rock outcrops, the 
   coastline, and other features. The image mosaics are useful for comparing the 
   extent and internal configuration of the Greenland ice sheet with current 
   satellite data. The data set consists of one tagged image file (.TIF) for each 
   year.

   The mosaic images are available via FTP. The files are large-- the 1962 mosaic 
   image dimensions are 17,092 by 28,484 pixels and the file size is 464.3 MB. 
   The 1963 image dimensions are 17,792 by 27,805 pixels and the file size is 
   471.8 MB.
