Definitions
■ ASTER L1A Product
ASTER L1A product is generated by applying realignment processing to ASTER
observation data. Geometric and radiometric correction coefficients including SWIR
parallax correction and inter-telescope miss-registration correction are appended. But
these corrections are not applied to the image data.
■ PALSAR L0 Virtual Scene
PALSAR L0 virtual scene is the theoretically framed scene coverage on the earth surface.
The coverage is calculated from observation time and orbit information of raw data (level 0
data).
■ PALSAR L1.0 Virtual Scene
PALSAR L1.0 virtual scene is the theoretically framed scene by applying data editing
such as bit realignment (L1.0 processing) to generate L1.0 product. SAR recovery
processing is not yet applied to L1.0 product. In the process of generating L1.0, browse
image of the L1.0 virtual scene is created. Orbit information to be used for L1.0 processing
is High Accuracy Orbit Information, Orbit Determination Value, GPSR, and Estimated Orbit
in descending order of accuracy. The most accurate orbit information held in PALSAR GDS
at the time of processing is used.
■ Inventory
Inventory is the catalog information on each scene, such as observation time,
geolocation, cloud coverage for ASTER, and quality assurance of image data. Inventory
information on the generated products is stored and managed in the database. By
inventory search described in later part, inventory information managed at GDS can be
retrieved under the specified search conditions.
■ Granule
Granule is the smallest aggregation of data for observation to be stored, managed, and
delivered at GDS. Each scene has a granule ID to identify its corresponding inventory.
■ Interferometry Processing
This processing is applied to SAR data in order to measure terrain and extract change of
3
terrain by interfering two data of the same area which were observed on different date and
time in the same conditions.

Services Provided at ASTER/PALSAR Unified Search Site
[ASTER/PALSAR Unified Search] provides services which are shown below.
1.4.1. Data Products Search Service
Data product search service provides simultaneous search for ASTER and PALSAR data
products (L1A products of ASTER, L0 and L1.0 Virtual scenes of PALSAR).
Data product search is performed by methods shown below.
1.4.1.1. Inventory Search
Search ASTER and PALSAR data through specifying inventory information such as
observation time and area as search conditions. ASTER L1A and PALSAR L0/L1.0 Virtual
scenes are retrieved by this method.. This method can search both ASTER and PALSAR
data.
Select data products on the search result to add to [Cart] for making an order.
1.4.1.2. Granule ID Search
Search ASTER and PALSAR data through specifying granule IDs. ASTER L1A, PALSAR
L0/L1.0 Virtual scenes are retrieved by this method, and high level products. Although
users can search with high level products of ASTER data, only ASETR L1A products are
listed on [Search Result]. Up to 500 Granule IDs for both ASTER and PALSAR scenes are
searchable at one time.
Select data products on the search result to add to [Cart] for making an order.
1.4.1.3.
Interferometry Pair Search
Interferometry pair search is for PALSAR L0 virtual scene and L1.0 virtual scene only.
Two types of search methods are available; Master Granule ID and AOI.
Master Granule ID search requires a granule ID of master scene and search conditions
for searching slave scenes. Retrieved slave scenes would have the same path number,
row number, and off-nadir angle as the master and be matched the specified search
conditions. Select data products on the search result to add to [Cart] for making an order.
AOI search requires setting conditions to collect scenes which could be master and slave
pairs by AOI on the map. The search engine retrieves virtual scenes to match the search
conditions. It groups retrieved scenes by path/row numbers and off-nadir angles.
4
Perpendicular baselines (Bperp as followed) among scenes in each group are calculated. A
scene in the group is considered as master image and others as slaves to calculate Bperp.
This processing is applied to all the scenes in the group considering all the scenes as
master scenes. Then, master scenes, which have shorter Bperp with own slave scenes are
than the specified value, are listed on search result. Users can download the list of
interferometry pairs as a CSV file. , Users cannot select them to add to [Cart].
1.4.1.4.
Matching Scenes Search
Users can search other ASTER and PALSAR data with the previous search result. The
search engine search data by retrieved scenes’ inventories, which include their own
center points on base scene coverage of one of scenes on previous search result. Users
can add extra conditions; observation mode(s) for ASTER and PALSAR and cloud
coverage for ASTER can be specified.
This search method uses previous search result of any search methods.
1.4.2.
Data Product Order Service
Users can make orders searched ASTER and PALSAR data products. Processing
parameters for each product are specified in the ordering process to request higher level
products.
This service is provided on [Product Order] of [ASTER GDS] for ASTER data products.
User certification on [ASTER GDS] is required to order ASTER data products. User
certification on [ASTER/PALSAR Unified Search] is also required to order PALSAR data
products.
1.4.3.
DPR Status Display Service
Regarding PALSAR product orders, every status of the last orders are referred on [Data
Product Order Service]. Only unpaid orders can be cancelled there. User certification is
required.
For ASTER data products orders, the same service is available on [ASTER GDS].
1.4.4.
