Paper Abstract

As will be pointed out many times in the next few months, the Earth Resources Technology Satellite (ERTS-1) has now completed two years of successful operation in orbit as of July 23, 1974. This satel-lite provides two sensor systems capable of imaging the Earth's surface with nominally 100m ground resolution across a 185 Km swathwidth. In addition, accurate relative radiometry is provided in four spectral bands by one of these ERTS systems known as the Multispectral Scanner (MSS). The four spectral bands cover the visible to near-IR (.5 -.6; .6 -.7; .7 -.8; and .8 -1.1 micrometers). The high quality of the ERTS-1 MSS imagery provides a known standard to which future systems can be compared.
