The Multi-angle Imaging SpectroRadiometer (MISR) is one of five instruments aboard the EOS Terra platform. MISR acquires pushbroom images of the Earth at 9 viewing angles ranging from 70.5 degrees forward to 70.5 degrees aftward of nadir, in 4 visible/near-IR spectral bands. Data are acquired over a swath width of approximately 400 km, with selectable footprints in each channel ranging from 275 m to 1.1 km
