Table 1 Definitions of the Akatsuki data-processing levels

From: Overview of Akatsuki data products: definition of data levels, method and accuracy of geometric correction

Abbr. Level Description
L0 Level 0 Raw data
L1a Level 1a Count values in FITS format
L1b Level 1b Flipped and rotated version of L1a with summary of geometry information in FITS format, and detailed geometry information in FITS format
L2b Level 2b Calibrated physical quantity with geometry information in FITS format
L3 Level 3 Calibrated physical quantity on longitude–latitude grids in NetCDF format which is preprocessed using the limb-fitting technique for pointing correction of the camera, including corrected geometry information
  1. Definitions of the Akatsuki data-processing levels, which are common in UVI, IR1, IR2, and LIR instruments. The L1b, L2b, and L3 data products will be open to the public at the Akatsuki Science Data Archive (http://darts.isas.jaxa.jp/planet/project/akatsuki/)
