- Important Note About the C-Band Radar Data Image Products
The radar data products currently being released are generated from
preliminary Digital Elevation Maps (DEM). Products made from the
preliminary DEMs are uncalibrated and are released with the understanding
that they are merely "showpiece" products. It is expected to take two
years to generate the final precision Digital Elevation Map.
- About the Anaglyph Data Products
When viewed through special
glasses, anaglyphs will allow you to see a vertically exaggerated view
of the Earth's surface in its full three dimensions. Anaglyph glasses
cover the left eye with a red filter and cover the right eye with a blue
filter. 3D Glasses Direct is an
online source for 3D glasses. They will even send you a free pair of
paper 3D glasses when you send them a stamped self-addressed envelope.
- About the Stereo Pair Data Products
The stereo-pair images are reversed; that is to say, the "left-eye" image is on the right side of the pair. This is intentional. It is set up for cross-eyed viewing, as
indicated on the image.
