Investigation:

LC-10 (Skole / Pedlowski)

LBA Dataset ID:

LBA-ECO_LC10_ETM

Originator(s):

TRFIC(Trop Rain Forest Info Cntr, MI St Univ)

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 orthorectified Landsat ETM+ scenes across the Legal Amazon region. At least one scene is provided for each spatial tile, representing the most cloud-free retrievals from mid-1999 through late 2001 (Fig. 1). Dates are therefore not continuous but include scenes from July 8, 1999 to November 13, 2001. Data have been atmospherically corrected and orthorectified. Data files (and format) included for each scene are: six multispectral bands (tif), two thermal bands (tif), one panchromatic band (tif), two preview files (jpg), and one metadata file (txt). The individual Geotiff files have been g-zipped and subsequently all of the files for a scene have been g-zipped together for ordering convenience.

Data Characteristics (Entity and Attribute Overview):

Data Characteristics:

This data set includes orthorectified Landsat ETM+ scenes across the Legal Amazon region. At least one scene is provided for each spatial tile, representing the most cloud-free retrievals from mid-1999 through late 2001. Dates are therefore not continuous and include scenes from July 8, 1999 to November 13, 2001.



Data files (and format) included for each scene are: six multispectral bands (tif), two thermal bands (tif), one panchromatic band (tif), two preview files (jpg), and one metadata file (txt). The individual Geotiff files have been g-zipped and subsequently all of the files for a scene have been g-zipped together for ordering convenience.



There are several tiles that have 2 scenes, that is, there are some path/row combinations with more than one retrieval for the same area, but from different dates. The following path/row combinations have 2 scenes each: p3r61, p224r65, p231r60 and p231r62.



Data directories are organized by path, then row, and the data files constructed from a concatenation of path + row + date (e.g. Path_001/Row_061/p001r61_7x000914). The final 6 digits indicate year=00 (i.e. 2000), month=09, day=14.



Example file names:

BAND1_FILE_NAME = p001r060_7t20011003_z20_nn10.tif

BAND2_FILE_NAME = p001r060_7t20011003_z20_nn20.tif

BAND3_FILE_NAME = p001r060_7t20011003_z20_nn30.tif

BAND4_FILE_NAME = p001r060_7t20011003_z20_nn40.tif

BAND5_FILE_NAME = p001r060_7t20011003_z20_nn50.tif

BAND61_FILE_NAME = p001r060_7k20011003_z20_nn61.tif

BAND62_FILE_NAME = p001r060_7k20011003_z20_nn62.tif

BAND7_FILE_NAME = p001r060_7t20011003_z20_nn70.tif

BAND8_FILE_NAME = p001r060_7p20011003_z20_nn80.tif



Map projection = UTM

Zones = 19, 20, 21, 22 or 23 (based on location)

Datum = WGS84

Ellipsoid = WGS84.

Data Application and Derivation:

These data were collected from the Landsat ETM+ sensor. Due to their high resolution, they are especially appropriate for small-scale/mesoscale land cover change studies.

Quality Assessment (Data Quality Attribute Accuracy Report):

Quality Assessment:

Data are atmospherically corrected and orthorectified. The individual images should be highly useful as they include very little cloud cover, but care should be used if they are mosaicked together since retrieval dates vary.

Process Description:

Data Acquisition Materials and Methods:

Original Landsat scenes were acquired from Eros Data Center (EDC).
