Description

This data set provides Landsat Enhanced Thematic Mapper Plus (ETM+) imagery, derived classified land cover products, and cloud-water masks for selected Brazilian states (Acre, Amapa, Amazonas, Maranhao, Mato Grosso, Para, Rondonia, and Roraima) for the years 1999-2002. The Landsat ETM+ images were processed to derive fractional land cover types (photosynthetic vegetation [PV], non-photosynthetic vegetation [NPV], and bare substrate) by application of the Carnegie Landsat Analysis System (CLAS) methodology (Asner et al., 2005). CLAS utilizes a quantitative determination of fractional land cover at the subpixel scale (e.g., within each Landsat 30 x 30 m pixel). The resulting images display estimates of subpixel land cover fraction values including free of clouds, cloud shadows, and water. There are 584 *.zip files in this data set which when expanded, contain a total of 1,717 (*.tif) images files (GeoTiff Standard format).
