Paper Abstract

The wide distribution of the satellite data measurements lead to increase of their role in the solving of the monitoring tasks. Now the set of satellites with the various characteristics works, but data received by device AVHRR of satellite NOAA near 30 years find the maximal application in many tasks of the industry, an agriculture and a science. However, the low spatial resolution, essential geometrical and brightness distortions of the images received from satellite devices AVHRR, established on satellites of series NOAA, complicate their direct analysis algorithms of thematic processing. There is a task of calibration received data to transition from the value directly measured by the device (ADC units) to real physical dimension (W/(m2×sr)), taking into account characteristics of the device at the moment of measurement. Because measurements are carried out not only in subsatellite point, and in some angular span, there is a problem of definition of exact geographical coordinates of a point in which measurement was carried out, and also geometrical correction of a image. Device AVHRR established on satellites of series NOAA, represents the space digital polyzonal system providing reception of the image of a surface of the Earth in 5 spectral channels with the spatial resolution of 1.1 km, the radiometric resolution of 10 bytes (1024 gradation) some times in day. As some satellites of this series simultaneously are in orbits so the same site of a surface of 5-6 times in day is accessible to the review. The width of a strip of scanning of the device makes 2048 points. For solving tasks of the satellite data processing for the educational-research purposes we develop the software "SATELLITEEXPLORER", working as Windows application. This application allows to process of the satellite data of device AVHRR which has been written in format HRPT.
