EASE-Grid Land-Ocean-Coastline-Ice Masks Derived from Boston University MODIS/Terra Land Cover Data, Version 1

Version 1 eng; usa
  • Abstract
    These Land-Ocean-Coastline-Ice (LOCI) files provide land classification masks derived from the Boston University MOD12Q1 V004 MODIS/Terra 1 km Land Cover Product (Friedl et al. 2002). The masks are available in various EASE-Grid azimuthal and global projections, at 12.5 km and 25 km spatial resolutions. The masks are in flat binary, 1 byte files stored by row. Quick-look browse images of the masks are also available in PNG (.png) format.
