The Landsat TM image datasets over Heihe River Basin (1987-2010)

Landsat 5 was launched in March 1984 and has been in orbit for 16 years. The thematic mapper (TM) sensor on Landsat 5 consists of seven bands, all of which have a resolution of 30m except for band 6, which has a resolution of 120m.

Currently, there are 23 TM data sets in heihe river basin.The obtained time was 1987-08-15, 1987-09-14, 1987-10-09, 1988-06-28, 1989-05-09, 1990-07-30, 1990-08-21 (2 scenes), 1990-08-28, 1990-08-30, 1990-09-15 (2 scenes), 1991-09-02, 1995-08-19, 1995-08-21, 2002-06-13,2003-09-12, 2007-09-23, 2008-03-17, 2008-07-07, 2008-07-23.

The product is class L1 and has been geometrically corrected.

File naming and required software

File name: the data is stored in raster tif format, the folder is stored in year, the file name "ppprrr_5tyyyymmddd_nnn", where PPP represents the starting band number of the product, 5t represents landsat5, RRR represents the starting line number of the product, yyyy represents the year, mm represents the month, DDD represents the day, NNN represents the band number, such as 135r34_5t19880628_nn2, line number 135r34 of the second band remote sensing image of June 1988.
Data reading: Envi, Arcgis and other remote sensing software can be used to open and read.
