MEaSUREs Annual Antarctic Ice Velocity Maps 2005-2017, Version 1

This data set, part of the NASA Making Earth System Data Records for Use in Research Environments (MEaSUREs) program, provides 12 annual maps of Antarctic ice velocity from 2005-2017. The maps are assembled using SAR data from the Japanese Space Agency's (JAXA) ALOS PALSAR, the European Space Agency's (ESA) ENVISAT ASAR and Copernicus Sentinel-1, the Canadian Space Agency's (CSA) RADARSAT-1, RADARSAT-2, the German Aerospace Agency's (DLR) TerraSAR-X (TSX) and TanDEM –X (TDX), and the U.S. Geological Survey's (USGS) Landsat-8 optical imagery acquired between 2005 and 2017. See MEaSUREs Ice Velocity Mapping of the Antarctic Ice Sheet Data for related data.
