Software Requirements Specification
An electronic link providing direct access from one hypertext document to another either located in another area or in the same document.
Pictorial representation of a scene recorded by a remote sensing system.
A map displayed on a graphical display device that can detect mouse clicks and respond using the location of the mouse click on the map to determine the action taken.
Either a Primary Key or a Foreign Key.
A series of earth orbiting NASA satellites that acquire multi-spectral images in various visible and IR bands.
Latitude is the Angular distance north or south from the earth’s equator measured through 90 degrees.
The operating system Linux, a Unix-like operating system available for most hardware computing platforms.
The process of gaining access to certain features of the AVS system.
The angular distance measured on a great circle of reference from the intersection of the adopted zero meridians with this reference circle to the similar intersection of the meridian passing through the object.
The Macintosh operating system features a graphical user interface (GUI) that utilizes windows, icons, and a mouse to make the computer simple to use.
Data describing the data contained in a database.
The use of two or more bands in remote sensing.
An instance of a class used to describe real-world entities that have a counterpart within the system.
A problem-solving paradigm that is based on abstracting real world entities including their attributes and functions. Interactions between objects generate the functionality of programs.
A picture element. The smallest unit of information in an image.
A condition that must be true prior to the execution of a piece of code.
A set of fields in a database table that is used to uniquely identify records in the table.
An organization or individual that will provide metadata for the AVS system.
A user's request for information, generally as a formal request to a database.
An active form of remote sensing that operates in the microwave and radio wavelength regions.
A unique row in a table in a database consisting of a set of fields that describe a single occurrence of some entity described by the table.
A user of the AVS system that has an account, for example a validator, provider or an administrator.
A database where data is stored in tables, which contain records, which contain fields. Relationships between tables are defined by foreign keys.
The measurement or acquisition of information about the Earth by a recording device that is not in physical contact with the Earth.
The fineness of detail that can be distinguished in an image. The real world size of the footprint of a pixel in a remote sensing image.
Part of a use case consisting of a sequence of steps describing the interactions between a user and a system.
A program that uses a search pattern to identify a set of web pages matching the search pattern.
A computer that provides services to other computers or to people.
The smallest object or feature detectable by the sensor. Also known as pixel size or resolution.
The number and width (wavelength) of bands (meaningful portions) of electromagnetic energy detectable by a given sensor.
A collection of records in a relational database.
