The Alaska Satellite Facility downlinks, processes, archives, and distributes remote-sensing data to scientific users around the world. ASF’s mission is to make remote-sensing data accessible. Some color differences between MapReady output and the PolSARPro .bmp files may be seen. This is due to different mapping methods. Turn off thumbnail & overlay generation for these files. OR Ignore the error, the desired output file has been generated even though the processing resulted in an error and didn’t move to “Completed”. This can occur when the input has multiple bands that each need to be calibrated, so that you get multiple output files with band suffixes appended. During processing, MapReady creates a temporary directory in the directory where the final output will be put, containing intermediate files. Sometimes these directories are not cleaned up properly after processing. ‘Error: This data cannot be calibrated, missing calibration block.’ encountered while attempting to generate a Sigma Radiometry image of AirSAR data AirSAR data is already calibrated, and MapReady cannot re-calibrate it. The GUI should prevent attempting to do so but currently does not. In the MapReady console window, you will see the name of the KML file MapReady is trying to open. Sometimes, this is not the name of the actual KML file that was generated. Pixel values of radiometrically terrain corrected PolSARPro T3 matrix differ greatly from those of geometrically terrain corrected T3 matrix command for mosaicking images which have been geocoded with the same map projection parameters. Only available at command line. Enhanced map projection support by adding the native datums ITRF97, ED50, and SAD69 to the predefined map projection parameter files. enter coordinates, or select a file that contains coordinate triplets (x, y, height) – one triplet per line. Results can be saved to a file as well. Added ‘trim’, a simple command-line utility that facilitates subsetting an ASF Internal Format file given starting line, number of lines, starting sample, and number of samples. Added ‘fill_holes’, a tool that replaces values in an image below a given cut-off with values interpolated from the shape and height of the surrounding terrain. The fill_holes tool is handy for manually patching ‘holes’ (regions with no-data values, typically very small negative values) in DEMs prior to using the DEM for terrain correction. The result is that hole-related artifacts in terrain corrected images are minimized (available as a command-line flag to asf_mapready and as a checkbox in MapReady as well.) The ‘to_sr’ tool has been added to the tool suite. The to_sr tool converts a ground range (or map-projected ASF Internal format image with state vectors available in the metadata file) into a slant-range image. Replaces deprecated gr2sr tool. The ‘deskew’ tool has been added to the tool suite. The deskew too removes satellite platform squint-induced skew from ground range images. Enhanced TIFF/GeoTIFF ingest to support a much broader spectrum of GeoTIFF types (scanline, tiled, striped, color, geocentric lat/long in decimal degrees) Improved Windows registry settings to allow parallel installations of multiple versions of the tool set (including uninstallation) Made input file name specification more flexible and removed some dependencies on the name of the file (less error prone) The Alaska Satellite Facility downlinks, processes, archives, and distributes remote-sensing data to scientific users around the world.
