Abstract:

Environmental data collected by satellite are now in extensive use. If the attitude and position of data-measuring satellites are accurately known, the measured data may be mapped automatically. Otherwise, as is usual, mapping on a standard projection may be achieved by using ground control points. For plotting oceanographic data from the eastern North Atlantic and the Mediterranean, SACLANTCEN has used the 392 European, Middle Eastern, and North African coastal ground control points whose positions and altitudes are listed in this document.
