Abstract:

Land surface water is the most important component of the Earth’s surface. The Global Land Surface Water Dataset at 30m Resolution in 2010 (GlobeLand30-WTR2010 for short) was developed based on data mining methodology by integrating and analyzing the 9907 scenes of the USA Landsat TM5, ETM data and 2640 scenes of the China environment disaster mitigation satellite (HJ-1) data in 2010. The total area of the land surface water is 3,675,400 km2, which is 2.73% of the global land surface area. More than 40% of land surface water is located in North America. The global data were organized into 853 tiles, according to the 5° (latitude) x 6° (longitude) within the region from 60°S to 60°N, and 5° (latitude) x 12° (longitude) within the region from 60°N to 80°N (the Antarctic continent is not included). The data tiles are combined into 5 compressed data groups (Asia, Europe, North America, South America, and Africa, and Oceanic Countries), Four different data files are comprised in each of these data groups. They are: (1) land surface water data (raster data with GeoTIFF format); (2) coordinate information data (TIFF WORD format); (3) areas of selected remote sensing data (.shp format); and (4) a metadata file (XML format). In addition, the 853 data file list, including the file names, corresponding geographic coordinates and zoning codes, are listed at the file. The dataset is one of the layers of the Global Land Cover Dataset at 30m Resolution in 2010 (GlobeLand30_2010), which were donated to the United Nations by China in September 2014.Browse
