LISS 3 Sensor

IRS (Indian Remote Sensing) LISS 3 full form is; Linear Imaging Self-Scanning Sensor 3.

LISS-III Resolution

The LISS – III Sensor provides Multispectral data in 4 Bands. The Spatial Resolution for visible is 2 bands, and Near-Infrared 1 band is 23.5 meters with a ground swath of 141 kms. The short wave infrared band is the 4th band, has a spatial resolution of 70.5 meters with a ground swath of 148 kms. The repetitivity of LISS – III is 24 days.
