Imagery dissemination services

Landline dissemination service (PNG) - via the Sentinel Asia website -

MTSAT imagery is available at no cost through Sentinel Asia, an Internet-based Web-GIS disaster management support system for the Asia-Pacific region. This is made possible through joint efforts by JMA and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA). Fully zoomable imagery in visible and infrared channels 1 and 3 is available on the Sentinel Asia website 30 minutes after observation.
