Summary
Abstract: [From The Landmap Project: Introduction,
"http://www.landmap.ac.uk/background/intro.html"]

A joint project to provide orthorectified satellite image mosaics of Landsat,
SPOT and ERS radar data and a high resolution Digital Elevation Model for the
whole of the UK. These data will be in a form which can easily be merged with
other data, such as road networks, so that any user can quickly produce a
precise map of their area of interest.

Predominately aimed at the UK academic and educational sectors these data and
software are held online at the Manchester University super computer facility
where users can either process the data remotely or download it to their local
network.

Please follow the links to the left for more information about the project or
how to obtain data or access to the radar processing system at MIMAS. Please
also refer to the MIMAS spatial-side website,
"http://www.mimas.ac.uk/spatial/", for related remote sensing materials.
