Problem with the Level 1&2 browser applied to OLCI ?

by jstum » Mon Oct 25, 2021 11:30 am America/New_York


I have been using the Level1&2 browser to identify which S3A OLCI Full resolution Level 1 filenames I have to download from your archive to cover a small geographic area over France (south : 43, north, 44, west : 3, east : 4) for year 2017. Your tool returned an enlarged area as given in the attached screen capture. Continuing the process (review order, then submit order) provided the file list. This file list has plenty of doublons (this is not really a problem), but the files are not the right ones. For example, for January 4th, the file list gives twice, but its footprint in above 49° North. The correct file is (see attached files)

Is there a problem on your side, or did I use your tool incorrectly ?

Thank you for your help,

It appears that you are using the tool correctly. I hope you have been able to find the data you expected. If not please check the Level 1/2 browse help instructions if you need more explanation on how to select data or to describe the data swaths and options you see on the screen. After that, let us know if you still have any issues.
