ALOS AVNIR-2 Summary

AVNIR-2 Advanced Visible and Near-Infrared Radiometer type 2

AVNIR-2 is a four-band (visible and near-infrared) radiometer on the ALOS satellite with a resolution of 10m, designed for observing land and coastal zones. The images will provide the basis for land coverage and land-use classification maps for monitoring regional environments. Additionally, the instrument has a cross-track pointing capability useful for quick response applications including disaster monitoring.
