Conclusion
• MAFF needs NPP/VIIRS data of Japan and SE Asian region for
research continuity especially for forest fire detection and fishing
boats monitoring of night time lights data.
• The fine VIIRS night time lights imagery is excellent!
• In this time, we checked the file names, imageries and HDF data
structures, which are not simple for non experts.
• We are considering to use the CLASS system to obtain real time
data.
