This imagery is available at a nominal resolution of 12.5 m. ScanSAR (50 m resolution) RADARSAT-1 imagery is available for all of Alberta. Two hundred and ten out of 284 scenes have been orthorectified to date (January 2002). Orthorectification of the remaining 74 scenes should be completed by March 2003.
