AbstractThe Canada Centre for Remote Sensing (CCRS) Geocoding and Compositing system (GeoComp) has been processing the Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) data from the United States National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) series of satellites since 1992. GeoComp (Robertson et al., 1992) has been designed to produce systematic, map-compatible multidate composite images over large areas and with reduced or no cloud content. A revision of the original system was proposed in 1995 to improve the design based on the experience gained from the system's operation, to incorporate the many advances in computer hardware, and to introduce value-added products resulting from the research that employed GeoComp products. The new system was called GeoComp-n for the next generationof GeoComp processors. Technical improvements designed into GeoComp-n include a modular system architecture, a fully functional operator GUI and a revamped data product format. The initial version of the system was delivered in March 1999, the validation of the data layers was completed in July 1999, and the system has been used operationally starting in the 2000 growing season. In this and the accompanying paper, we describe the new system and the wide range of products that are generated through its operation.
