WMS Global Mosaic

[ Get Data ]

Abstract: The WMS Global Mosaic is a global mosaic of 8208, orthorectified, Landsat7 ETM+
scenes from the NASA Scientific Data Purchase GeoCover 2000 dataset. The
purpose of the WMS Global Mosaic is to provide OpenGIS Web Map Service (WMS)
access to a medium resolution (up to 15m), multispectral and recent data set
with global extent, suitable as a base-map for many applications and to enable
analysis using false-color rendering of Landsat imagery by any http client.
False-color rendering is by the user's choice of any combination of the ETM+
bands using OpenGIS(r) Style Layer Descriptor (SLD).

Quality The mosaic was constructed from the GeoCover 2000 dataset. The WMS Global
Mosaic is a high level dataset, affected by the accuracy of the input scenes,
plus the ones introduced by the mosaic building procesing step. Average values
of each of the input spectral bands have been preserved as much as possible.
The values of the source scenes have been ... View entire text
