SWATH WIDTH

The cross-track width of an image defined by the camera’s field of view. If the satellite’s swath width is 60 km then a satellite image scene will usually be delivered as a 60 km x 60 km image.

SYSTEM CORRECTED

Data is geometrically adjusted for the spacecraft's orientation and predicted position (i.e., North = "up"). System corrected data is useful when accurate base maps are not available.
