Nimbus Advanced Vidicon Camera System Remapped Visible Imagery Daily L3, HDF5
This data set (NmAVCS3H) consists of daily, global image composites constructed from Nimbus 1 (1964) and Nimbus 2 (1966) Advanced Vidicon Camera System (AVCS) imagery. 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.
The following example shows how to cite the use of this data set in a publication. For more information, see our Use and Copyright Web page.
