In order to test the multispectral search idea, I was wondering if some of you could help out. In order to have the instrument people figure out if there is even a chance of detecting a boat of the size of Tenacious I am wondering if somebody could help in locating some good examples featuring all the conditions listed below:
- Location of a known boat at a known time and GPS coordinates (sailing races that have been featured on GE or Google Maps, Maud Fontenoy recent trip, others….)
- Said location is within the coverage of either Landsat 5/7 or Envisat ( check http://edcsns17.cr.usgs.gov/EarthExplorer/ , http://miravi.eo.esa.int/en/ <– Internet Explorer only)
- Said Landsat5/7 or Envisat coverage has no cloud on the location of said boat.
As one can see the cloud coverage is pretty important:
