The Airborne Science Data Facility at NASA Dryden Flight Research Center performs post-flight processing of digital, photographic and navigation data acquired by the ER-2s. The Data Facility documents and archives these data and produces imagery data for delivery to sponsoring investigators. Additionally the Data Facility assists the Aircraft Sensor Laboratory in performing calibration of NASA Dryden multispectral scanners. Information regarding digital and photographic data availability, flight documentation, scanner calibration and data tape formats may be obtained from the following:

Ordering from the USGS EROS Data Center

Most of the photographic and digital imagery data taken by the ER-2 are archived at the EROS Data Center for distribution to interested users. After budget cuts in fiscal year 1996, photos taken by the ER-2 after May 1996 are no longer being duplicated and shipped to the EROS Data Center for public distribution and archival. However, a photo archive of over 500,000 frames is available before this time.

Digital imagery data from the TMS, TIMS and AOCI multispectral scanners are also archived at the EROS data center. Information on data products and how to order may be obtained from the following:
