GAC--Global Area Coverage:
GAC data are derived from a sample averaging of the full resolution AVHRR data. Four out of every five samples along the scan line are used to compute one average value and the data from only every third scan line are processed, yielding 1.1 km by 4 km resolution at the subpoint.

LAC--Local Area Coverage:
LAC are full resolution data that are recorded on an onboard tape recorder for subsequent transmission during a station overpass. The average instantaneous field-of-view of 1.4 milliradians yields a LAC ground resolution of approximately 1.1 km at the satellite nadir from the nominal orbit altitude of 833 km (517 mi).

CIRA collects, processes, and archives all the Polar orbit NOAA-12 and NOAA-14 Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) Local Area Coverage (LAC) and Global Area Coverage (GAC) [one orbit per image] data re-transmitted by the Gilmore Creek, Alaska earthstation via DOMSAT.

I'm looking for comments on this. Yes, I know I need to add GOMS and Feng-Yun-2. Anybody have VRML models of the WX sats? also doesn't work with VRML 2 viewers
