What is the difference between a visual scene and an analytic scene?

Both visual and analytic scenes are served as GeoTIFFs, but they have different bit depths and uses.

Visual: the visual product is an orthorectified 8-bit GeoTIFF that has a color curve pre-applied in order to be more readily usable in most visual analysis and display applications.

Analytic: the analytic product is 12-bit data delivered in an orthorectified 16-bit GeoTIFF file with no visual color-corrections applied; it is designed for analytical and scientific applications.
