Investigation:

LC-09 (Moran / Batistella)

LBA Dataset ID:

LC09_LANDSAT

Originator(s):

1. BRONDIZIO, E.S.
      2. MORAN, E.F.

Point(s) of Contact:

ORNL DAAC User Services Office Oak Ridge National Laboratory Oak Ridge, Tennessee 37 (ornldaac@ornl.gov)

Dataset Abstract:

This data set includes 15 zipped archives of rectified .tif format Landsat 5 TM and Landsat 7 ETM+ scenes from near the study sites of Altamira, Santarem, Ponta de Pedras, and Bragantina in the state of Para, Brazil and Machadinho D\'Oeste in Rondonia, Brazil. Dates represent the most cloud-free image retrievals from 1985-2004 and are therefore not continuous. These images may be useful to evaluate potential environmental impacts resulting from the establishment of colonization projects in the Amazon.

Data Characteristics (Entity and Attribute Overview):

Data Characteristics:

This data set includes zipped archives of rectified Landsat ETM+ and TM scenes (as TIF .tif files with header files as TIF world .tfw files, and raster metadata as .aux files) near the study sites of Altamira, Santarem, Ponta de Pedras, and Bragantina in the state of Para, Brazil and Machadinho D'Oeste in Rondonia, Brazil. Dates represent the most cloud-free image retrievals from 1985-2004 and are therefore not continuous.



Data have been rectified, unless otherwise noted (see individual file information below).



Bands 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7 included (listed as layers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6) (unless otherwise noted). n/a=not available.



Corner pixel coordinates lie within the center of the pixel.



File names include image product name, path/row information, and acquisition date, for example:



lNPPPRRYYYYMMDD,



where l = image product name as Landsat,



N= Landsat platform number,



P=path,



R=row,



Y=year,



M=month, and



D=day.

Data Application and Derivation:

Data to be used in spatial analyzes of land use and land cover change. Methods incorporating both landscape ecology and remote sensing techniques may be useful to evaluate potential environmental impacts resulting from the establishment of colonization projects in the Amazon.

Quality Assessment (Data Quality Attribute Accuracy Report):

Quality Assessment:

Data, where georeferenced, generated to previous, rectified images with low RMS error (<1.0).

Process Description:

Data Acquisition Materials and Methods:

Data acquired from:

-USGS EROS (http://edc.usgs.gov/products/satellite/mss.html)

-Landsat.org (http://www.landsat.org)

-INPE (http://www.inpe.br/)



Bands combined and registered to UTM using ERDAS Imagine 8.7 (Leica Geosystems, St Gallen, Switzerland). Images were georeferenced to previously rectified images using ERDAS Imagine 8.7. Radiometric and atmospheric correction done according to methods described by Green et al. (2005).

Data originally in the Imagine file format (.img), but exported to TIF (.tif) using ERDAS Imagine 8.7.
