BOREAS TE-18 LANDSAT TM MAXIMUM LIKELIHOOD CLASSIFICATION IMAGE OF THE SSA
Get Data

Summary:

A Landsat-5 TM image from 06-Aug-1990 was used to derive this classification. The objective of this classification is to provide the BOREAS investigators with a data product that characterizes the land cover of the SSA. A standard supervised maximum likelihood approach was used to produce this classification.

Companion files include example thumbnail images that may be viewed using a convenient viewer utility.

A guide document which includes more information about this data set can be found at http://daac.ornl.gov/boreas/TE/ltmmaxls/comp/TE18_SSA_Class_Max.txt.

ORNL DAAC maintains information on the entire BOREAS Project.
