OVERVIEW

The Digital Mapping System (DMS) is an airborne digital camera that acquires high resolution natural color and panchromatic imagery from low and medium altitude research aircraft. Data acquired by DMS are used by a variety of scientific programs to monitor variation in environmental conditions, assess global change, and respond to natural disasters.

The DMS instrument is maintained and operated by the Airborne Sensor Facility (ASF) located at the NASA Ames Research Center in Mountain View, California, under the oversight of the EOS Project Science Office at NASA Goddard. Instrument scheduling is coordinated by the ASF, with formal arrangements made via the NASA Suborbital Science Program Flight Request process (see contact information for more details).
