IceBridge LVIS POS/AV L1B Corrected Position and Attitude Data, Version 1

This data set contains georeferencing data from the Applanix 510 and 610 POS AV systems flown with the Land, Vegetation, and Ice Sensor (LVIS) over Greenland, Antarctica, and Alaska. The data were collected as part of Operation IceBridge funded campaigns, including the Arctic Radiation - IceBridge Sea and Ice Experiment (ARISE).

The documentation for this data set is currently under construction and will be available in the near future. If you have any questions regarding this data set, please contact NSIDC User Services Office either by e-mail to nsidc@nsidc.org or by telephone at +1 303-492-6199.

The IceBridge LVIS POS/AV L1B Corrected Position and Attitude Data (IPPLV1B) data set contains georeferencing data from the Applanix 510 and 610 POS AV systems flown with the Land, Vegetation, and Ice Sensor (LVIS) over Greenland and Antarctica. Data parameters include latitude, longitude, altitude, velocity, roll, pitch, and heading. The data were collected as part of Operation IceBridge funded campaigns, including the Arctic Radiation - IceBridge Sea and Ice Experiment (ARISE). The data are stored in binary format, and are available from 15 April 2011 to 04 October 2014 via HTTPS.

Operation IceBridge products may include test flight data that are not useful for research and scientific analysis. Test flights usually occur at the beginning of campaigns. Users should read flight reports for the flights that collected any of the data they intend to use. Check IceBridge campaign Flight Reports for dates and information about test flights.

The directory structure for this data set is described in the 00README.txt file.

NSIDC provides two Applanix SBET file readers, and one MATLAB reader:

  • The Perl reader reads a binary SBET file and writes the data to standard output.
  • The C reader extracts only the latitude, longitude and altitude data from an SBET binary file, and outputs another binary file that can be modified for various purposes, for example to output ASCII formatted data.
  • MATLAB reader that reads Applanix aircraft data files.
