Band #, Range:
3-band handheld digital camera (currently Nikon D5) images;
~ 0.4-0.7 microns (RGB); resolution variable with look angle, lens used, and ISS altitude; typically between 10-50 m/pixels
Swath / Extent:
RGB handheld digital camera imagery collected by the ISS crew, subject to operation constraints (including crew work/sleep schedule, other ISS tasks, and planned ISS manuevers) and crew responsiveness to targeting callouts (considered a best-effort activity). In general, spectral quality is low due to COTS camera design but spatial information content can be high with longer lens images (= higher ground spatial resolution). Unprocessed imagery typically available 24 hours after acquisition and downlink; post-processing to fully georeference images typically adds 24+ hours depending on number of frames and difficulty matching ground features.
