Appendix I: Formulation of a Generic Algorithm for Earth Locating Data from NOAA Polar Satellites


This appendix is a version of a paper written by James K. Ellickson (NOAA/NESDIS), Marie D. Henry(NOAA/NESDIS), Dr. C.K. Wong and Dr. Om P. Sharma (both of Science and Systems Applications, Inc) in August 1988 and included in NOAA Technical Memorandum NESS 107, Revision 1, as Appendix C. Although it was written almost 20 years ago, the information contained herein is still pertinent to the new NOAA KLM series satellites. The present version has been modified by Irv Ruff (NOAA/NESDIS), to include provision for instrument mounting errors, and by Howard Carney (NOAA/NESDIS), to include provision for geodetic subpoint and to correct some inconsistencies.

Amended May 8, 2006
