BOREAS TE-18 Landsat TM Physical Classification Image of the SSA

ABSTRACT: The objective of this classification is to provide the BOREAS investigators with a data product that characterizes the land cover of the SSA. A Landsat-5 TM image from 02-Sep-1994 was used to derive the classification. A technique was implemented that uses reflectances of various land cover types along with a geometric optical canopy model to produce spectral trajectories. These trajectories are used as training data to classify the image into the different land cover classes. These data are provided in a binary image file format. Companion files include example thumbnail images that may be viewed and the image data files downloaded using a convenient viewer utility.
