Natural Color Fire RGB (Interactive Quick Guide)
A 2-page Quick Guide (PDF) and an “interactive” (html/5) version describe the fundamental aspects of the Natural Color/Fires RGB Imagery product and they demonstrates color interpretation of the multi-channel imagery. The RGB is based on the internationally accepted EUMETSAT RGB “best practices” guidelines, but replaces the 1.6 micron in the red component with the 2.3 micron channel in order to highlight fire hotspots. Additionally, the RGB highlights land surface features in expected colors, except for surface snow/ice in cyan, while ice clouds and water clouds are differentiated in color from white/gray to cyan. This Quick Guide style is intended to help users recall important points from foundational training. The PDF can be printed and used as a job aid in the operations area. Both the PDF and the interactive versions can be downloaded for local use via intranet or within the user’s display system.
