Data set update: IceBridge CAMBOT L1B Geolocated Images

The IceBridge CAMBOT L1B Geolocated Images, Version 2 data set, accessible through the NASA National Snow and Ice Data Center Distributed Active Archive Center (NSIDC DAAC), has been updated with improved georeferencing for nine sea ice flights. This data set contains high-resolution imagery taken with the Continuous Airborne Mapping By Optical Translator (CAMBOT) system over Antarctica and Greenland. A georeferencing issue was discovered in three sea ice flights from the 2018 Antarctic campaign and six from the 2019 Arctic spring campaign. Subsequent algorithm improvements, both in georeferencing and generation of input Airborne Topographic Mapper (ATM) data, were made after the initial delivery of these flights. These improvements significantly increased the reliability of the final product and these initial nine sea ice flights were reprocessed in an effort to standardize the output quality of the IOCAM1B product.
