Global Landsat 5 TM Mosaic TilesEntry ID: Canada_SpatialMap_Mosaic_Canada
Abstract: Orthorectified Landsat 5 TM imagery is now available for the entire world. The
pixel size or resolution is 28.5 meters. Bands used are: 7 (mid-infrared light)
displayed as red, 4 (near-infrared light) displayed as green and 2 (visible
green light) displayed as blue. Search under Landsat 5 TM mosaics to view and
use some of these mosaics. Please note that some of these large area mosaics
are at ... reduced resolution.
These Landsat 5 TM Tile mosaics are freely available on-line, via ResMap, and
can be viewed using a standard Internet browser or directly in GIS/CAD/Office
applications, with the use of free plug-ins available from www.ermapper.com
(downloads section). Off-line data is available by contacting Spatial Mapping
Ltd.The objective of the global Landsat 5 project is to produce a complete set
of cloud-free (less than 10% were possible) orthoimages covering the global
landmass using Thematic Mapper (TM) data from the Landsat-5 satellite.
These large raster datasets are instantly accessible via URL to end users on
their desktop applications, without the requirement to download, convert or
enhance the data prior to its use.
