Summary
Abstract: This data set consists of Landsat Multispectral Scanner (MSS) and
Thematic Mapper (TM) imagery for the legal Amazon and Pan Amazon
regions of South America, Central Equatorial Africa and Southeast
Asia. Imagery for all regions are available through TRFIC. The
Tropical Rain Forest Information Center (TRFIC) has developed two
interfaces for browsing and ordering data: a Web-GIS interface and a
Web-HTML interface. Imagery for the Pan Amazon and Central Africa
regions can only be ordered using the Web-GIS interface. Data for
these two regions are also located at the University of Maryland
Landsat Pathfinder Archive http://glcf.umiacs.umd.edu/.
