What is the Alpha Mask?

An Alpha mask is included in Basemap quads or tiles.

The alpha mask is an additional band provided as a binary color channel, therefore representing binary values. The alpha mask can be used to render, remove, or hide low-image-quality pixels near the periphery of a given scene. It compensates for effects due to vignetting, low SNR, or hot or cold pixels.
