GIS Raster Layers



Basic raster layers from the MCM-LTER spatial data holdings have been exported and symbolized. The dataset files offered here include:

  • 30m DEM made from USGS Topo map
  • SPOT Satellite Image 39-558
  • LANDSAT 7 Satellite Image

Note - the SPOT and LANDSAT layers are not MCM-LTER data products.  These resources were updated last in 2007, for more up-to-date layers, and potentially, higher resolution layers, please visit the Polar Geospatial Center and other affine geospatial data clearinghouses. 

Date Range: 

Tuesday, May 1, 2007 to Thursday, November 1, 2007

Esri formatted RASTERs. 125Mb file contain raster base layers, 30m DEM made from USGS Topo map. SPOT Satellite Image 39-558, LANDSAT 7 Satellite Image
