Landsat Orthorectified TM Imagery

[ Update this Record ]

Abstract: Background. Data were compiled through NASA's Commercial Remote
Sensing Program; this program is a cooperative effort between NASA and
the commercial remote sensing community to provide users with access
to quality-screened, high-resolution satellite images with global
coverage over the Earth's land masses. The resulting Landsat thematic
mapper (TM) geocover data set contains orthorectified ... View entire text
