Landsat 8 dataset of Greenland (2014-2015)

A remote sensing image mosaic was generated for Greenland by processing a collection of 108 scenes of Landsat 8 OLI remote sensing images from 2014 to 2015 with DN correction, cloud removal correction, planetary reflectance correction, reflectance and RGB value conversion, image synthesis and merging, etc. The spatial resolution of the entire image is 30 m, and the stereographic projection method is adopted.

Data file naming and use method

The Greenland image mosaic is divided into 23 sub regions named as 'region + XX.tif'. 'XX' is the sub region number. Please refer to the document "00 Atlas - 01. TIF" for the division rules.
