BOREAS LEVEL-0 TIMS IMAGERY: DIGITAL COUNTS IN BIL FORMAT
Get Data

Summary:

For BOREAS, the TIMS imagery, along with the other remotely sensed images, was collected to provide spatially extensive information over the primary study areas. The level-0 TIMS images cover the time periods of 16-Apr-1994 to 20-Apr-1994 and 06-Sep-1994 to 17-Sep-1994. The images are available in their original uncalibrated format. Companion files include (1) an image inventory listing to inform users of the images that are available and (2) example thumbnail images that may be viewed and the image data files downloaded using a convenient viewer utility.

A guide document which includes more information about this data set and about how to acquire actual level-0 TIMS images can be found at http://daac.ornl.gov/boreas/STAFF/tims0bil/comp/TIMS_L0.txt.

ORNL DAAC maintains information on the entire BOREAS Project.
