G-LiHT Aerial Orthomosaic V001

Goddard’s LiDAR, Hyperspectral, and Thermal Imager (G-LiHT) mission is a portable, airborne imaging system that aims to simultaneously map the composition, structure, and function of terrestrial ecosystems. G-LiHT primarily focuses on a broad diversity of forest communities and ecoregions in North America, mapping aerial swaths over the coterminous United States (CONUS), Alaska, Puerto Rico, and Mexico. The purpose of G-LiHT’s Aerial Orthomosaic data product (GLORTHO) is to provide orthorectified high-resolution aerial photography. This data is provided as a supplement to other G-LiHT data products. GLORTHO data are processed as a raster data product (GeoTIFF) at 1 inch spatial resolution over locally defined areas. A low resolution browse is also provided with a color map applied in PNG format.
