Analysis Ready Data (ARD)


Refers to EO data that has been processed to a level that allows the direct utilization of the data in analytic operations such as time series analysis. The exact specification of what constitutes these relevant pre-processing steps is to a certain degree user and application dependent. CEOS provides specifications of ARD for Radar backscatter, surface reflectance and surface temperature data in the context of land applications.
