BOREAS FOREST COVER DATA LAYERS OVER THE SSA-MSA IN RASTER FORMAT
Get Data

Summary:

This data set was prepared by BORIS staff by processing the original vector data into raster files. The original data were received as ARC/INFO coverages or as export files from SERM. The data include information on forest parameters for the BOREAS SSA MSA. The data are stored in binary, image format files.

A guide document which includes more information about this data set can be found at http://daac.ornl.gov/boreas/STAFF/ssafcovr/comp/SSA_For_Cov_Raster.txt.

ORNL DAAC maintains information on the entire BOREAS Project.
