map projection: Any systematic arrangement of meridians and parallels portraying the curved surface of a sphere or spheroid upon a plane.
metadata: Information describing data sets and making it possible to discover, inventory and use them (INSPIRE directive, CF conventions). Data about data (ISO 19115).
minimum noise fraction (MNF): Linear transform to estimate the actual dimension of an image and to remove noise and reduce processing time.
MIVIS: Multispectral Infrared and Visible Imaging Spectrometer.
MODIS: Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer.
modulation transfer function (MTF): The geometric description of a detector’s instantaneous field-of-view (IFOV) from the airborne sensor.
mosaic: An image or photograph made by piecing together individual images or photographs covering adjacent areas.
MWIR: Midwave infrared - 3-6 µm, the detected energy is a mixture of solar reflected and thermally emitted radiation.
multispectral: Generally denotes remote sensing data in more than one spectral band.
