Landsat GeoCover Subsets

Description

The Landsat GeoCover 2000 collection of global imagery was subset by the GLCF into 20 kilometer squares centered on every intersection of one degree latitude and one degree longitude. This collection is intended as a sample of the complete Landsat coverage for use in global modeling. The original Landsat imagery is too large for storage and processing in most global modeling operations, so subsets are made available.

For further information regarding Landsat GeoCover imagery, please read the publication about GeoCover.

Also, note there is an unaffiliated group documenting degree intersections, providing often valuable, but personal, photographs of ground conditions: The Degree Confluence Project.
