Files listed bellow contain auxiliary information required for each LSA SAF processing window, namely:

  • geographical location of the data (Latitude and Longitude), on a pixel by pixel basis;
  • for each pixel, information concerning the land cover type classification (LandCover), data elevation (Digital Elevation Model) and land water mask (Water Mask).

 

The format of the files is HDF5.
