The maps and tabular data used in the WinDisp 3.5 User's Manual are from the GIEWS Workstation database which were collected from various sources. The NDVI images used in the manual were produced at the Laboratory for Terrestrial Physics at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center and are derived from the AVHRR sensor aboard the NOAA series of meteorological satellites. The CCD images used in the examples were produced by the FAO ARTEMIS system and compiled from data received from the METEOSAT series of satellites.
