NASA Web-Enabled Landsat Data Alaska 30m Composite Pixel Center Lat/Longs V001

WELDAKLL.015 was decommissioned on December 2, 2019. Users are encouraged to use the improved monthly and annual Global Web-Enabled Landsat Data (GWELD) Version 3.1 (GWELDMO.031 and GWELDYR.031) datasets and the USGS U.S. Landsat Analysis Ready Data Level-2 Data Product (Landsat ARD). The NASA Web-Enabled Landsat Data (WELD) Alaska Latitude Longitude (LL) products are defined with 30 meter (m) composite pixel of the center latitude/longitude point. The NASA WELD data contain a range of values for the minimum/maximum latitude and longitude points. The LL products were created to account for the actual center pixel latitude and longitude points. WELD systematically generated 30 m composited Landsat Enhanced Thematic Mapper Plus (ETM+) mosaics of the United States and Alaska from 2002 to 2012 to provide consistent data for deriving land cover as well as geophysical and biophysical products for regional assessments of surface dynamics for effective study of Earth system function. WELDAKLL is distributed in Hierarchical Data Format 4 (HDF4) (https://www.hdfgroup.org/products/hdf4/). The WELD project is funded by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and is a collaboration between the United States Geological Survey (USGS) Earth Resources Observation and Science (EROS) Center and the South Dakota State University (SDSU) Geospatial Sciences Center of Excellence (GSCE).
