Description

This dataset provides resources for identifying flight lines of interest for the MODIS/ASTER Airborne Simulator (MASTER) instrument based on spatial and temporal criteria. MASTER first flew in 1998 and has ongoing deployments as a Facility Instrument in the NASA Airborne Science Program (ASP). MASTER is a joint project involving the Airborne Sensor Facility (ASF) at the Ames Research Center, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), and the Earth Resources Observation and Science Center (EROS). The primary goal of these airborne campaigns is to demonstrate important science and applications research that is uniquely enabled by the full suite of MASTER thermal infrared bands as well as the contiguous spectroscopic measurements of the AVIRIS (also flown in similar campaigns), or combinations of measurements from both instruments. This dataset includes a table of flight lines with dates, bounding coordinates, site names, investigators involved, flight attributes, and associated campaigns for the MASTER Facility Instrument Collection. A shapefile containing flights for all years, a GeoJSON version of the shapefile, and separate KMZ files for each year allow users to visualize flight line locations using GIS software.
