Urban Landsat: Cities from SpaceEntry ID: CIESIN_SEDAC_URBAN_LANDSAT
Abstract: The Urban Landsat: Cities from Space dataset contains images for 66 urban areas and the raw,
unerlying data for 28 of these places. Each image shows a Landsat false color composite in UTM projection. The R/G/B layers
correspond to TM/ETM+ bands 7/4/2. Each pixel is 30x30 meters in area and most images are 30x30 km in area. A 2% linear stretch has
been applied to the images. The Landsat data ... files contain six reflected bands of calibrated exoatmospheric reflectance stored in
ENVI band sequential (BSQ) format. Geographic coordinates are included in the header file. The data file contains 1000x1000x6 4 byte
floating point numbers as indicated in the header. This dataset is distributed by the Socioeconomic Data and Applications Center
(SEDAC) at Center for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN), Columbia University.
Purpose: To serve a wide user community by providing composite Landsat images and raw data for urban
areas that can be used in interdisciplinary studies of remote sensing and the environment.
