Spatial resolution: Bands 1-5 & 7: 30 meters, Band 6: 120 meters



Projection (for imagery that has been georectified): Universal Transverse Mercator, Zone 18S

Data Application and Derivation:

Typical application of the data: These images may be used cartographically, as base data upon which other spatial data layers are displayed. Additionally, the data may be used to derive LULC classifications that may be used to calculate deforestation rates or pattern metrics, as well as to produce change detections.



Derivation techniques: NA; these datasets are the original imagery, from which classifications were derived.

Quality Assessment (Data Quality Attribute Accuracy Report):

Quality Assessment:

Horizontal Accuracy: MSS Images that have been geo-rectified all have a horizontal accuracy of plus or minus 40 meters. TM and ETM Images that have been geo-rectified all have a horizontal accuracy of plus or minus 15 meters. Those images that have not been rectified have no quantifiable horizontal accuracy.

Process Description:

Data Acquisition Materials and Methods:

MSS Data acquisition methods: All scenes were acquired from NASA\'s Earth Observing System (EOS).



TM/ ETM Data acquisition methods: All scenes were acquired from NASA\'s Earth Observing System (EOS), with the exception of two scenes acquired from CLIRSEN (Centro de Levantamientos Integrados de Recursos Naturales por Sensores Remotos) in Ecuador
