Data naming format: the data set consists of 37 folders from 1978 to 2015. Each folder includes the daily surface freeze-thaw classification results of the current year. The daily surface freeze-thaw classification results are stored in the format of TXT. The naming rules are "smmr-ftyyyddd. TXT" or "ssmi-ftyyyddd. TXT" or "ssms-ftyyyddd. TXT", where yyyy represents the year and DDD represents the Julian day.
Data reading mode: all ASCII TXT files in this data set can be opened directly with a text program (such as notepad).In addition to the header file, the main content is the numerical representation of the freezing-thawing state of the surface: 1 represents freezing, 2 represents melting, 3 represents desert, and 4 represents precipitation.If the graph is to be displayed, it is recommended to use ArcView + 3D or Spatial Analyst extension module to read. In the process of reading, the grid file will be generated, and the grid file displayed is the graphical expression of the ASCII file.
