Data for: A new ranking of the world's largest cities - Do administrative units obscure morphological realities?
Contributors: Hannes Taubenböck
... The Shape-File „Morphological_Urban_Area.shp” contains the final delimitation of city extents based on the methodology described in section 3.2. The analysis was done for all cities on our planet with more than 300,000 inhabitants, i.e. a total of 1,692 cities were included in this study. However, as many urban regions across the globe have experienced a coalescence of multiple, once morphologically separate cities, the data sets in the Shape-File is reduced to 1569 MUA extents. This is due to the following approach: if MUAs from two (or more) neighboring cities overlap, we combine the MUAs from both (or more) cities into one.

Data for: Optical properties of Forel-Ule water types deduced from 15 years of global satellite ocean color observations
Contributors: Jaime Pitarch
... This dataset is made of twelve netCDF files corresponding to the twelve climatological months of marine optical data. Each file contains the following mapped variables: - x coordinate of the CIE1931 color space - y coordinate of the CIE1931 color space - Hue angle - Forel-Ule index Source data for these files are the ESA-OC-CCI v2.0 climatological remote-sensing reflectance of global surface waters (1997-2013), mapped at a resolution of 0.25 degrees latitudinally and longitudinally. These source files can be retrieved at: ftp://oceancolour.org/occci-v2.0/geographic/netcdf/climatology/lower_resolution/0.25degree/ Files in this dataset have directly copied the latitude and longitude variables of the corresponding source files. Absence of data is coded as not-a-number. File name format is 'ESACCI-OC-L3S-OC_PRODUCTS-CLIMATOLOGY-16Y_MONTHLY_0.25degree_GEO_PML_OC4v6_QAA-mMM-fv2.0_xy_Hue_FU.nc', where MM stands for the month of the year, in two-digits format.
Data for: Earth observation and social media: evaluating the spatiotemporal contribution of non-native trees to cultural ecosystem services
Contributors: Ana Vaz
... The excel file contains the results of the content analysis of all social media photographs considered in the paper. In the file NT stand for the dominance of native tree species, and NNT refers to the dominance of non-native trees.
Data for: Automated detection of thermoerosion in permafrost ecosystems using temporally dense Landsat image stacks

... Summary tables of existing active and inactive retrogressive thaw slumps in northern Alaska.
Data for: Development of a snow kernel to better model the anisotropic reflectance of pure snow in a kernel-driven BRDF model framework
Contributors: Ziti Jiao
... 1. About the visulization tool for the RossThick-LiSparseReciprocal-Snow (RTLSRS for short) BRDF model. This is the description for the interface and operation of the # rtlsr_gui.sav application, which can be used to launch runtime IDL applications. Source code will be offerred on request from email: email@example.com. "Constrain" botton on this application interface inplements the function that does not allow negative model parameters, which are suggested by MODIS BRDF parameter product. 2. Environment：need to install IDL8.2 and above 3. Data format：this tool supports the input format of text file. The specific input format is requested as follows: the first line defines the number of multi-angle observations and the number of bands for the multi-angle input dataset, respectively. From the beginning of the second line, each line defines an observation with each sample representing the viewing and solar geometries (in degree) and the reflectances in different bands. Specifically, from left to right, each sample represents view zenith angle,view azimuth angle,solar zenith angle,view azimuth angle and the reflectance of each band in sequence. 4. The exemplary data A typical POLDER example was obtained in Apr. 2006 from the file "brdf_ndvi02.0216_3046.txt." in POLDER database. This pixel is located on the central North Greenland Ice Sheet (i.e., 52.1W, 78.03N) and was recorded to represent a relatively pure snow and ice IGBP class with a Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) value of -0.03. This pixel incorporates more than 1,000 POLDER reflectances and 70 solar angles representing a very good BRDF sampling distribution. The method proposed by Breon (2005) should be utilized to correct the viewing geometry from the original POLDER measurements that offer two correction parameters (DVzC and DVzA), which was used in the paper. However, please note that this input example file including 6-band observations is not corrected for the viewing geometries. Input directory: contains an input example file, e.g., "brdf_ndvi02.0216_3046.txt". Output directory: contains the corresponding output example file, e.g.,"brdf_ndvi02.0216_3046_result.txt". 5. All validation data for the RTLSRS model are open and available to users following the details of the paper.
Phenology-adaptive / static MODIS composites: seamless multi-annual (2005+-2) and seasonal (POS, EOS, MOS) image composites across Zambia
Contributors: David Frantz, Achim Röder, Marion Stellmes, Joachim Hill
... This dataset contains seasonal, multi-annual MODIS reflectance composites generated across Zambia for 2005 +-2 years. The data is associated to following paper: D. Frantz, A. Röder, M. Stellmes, and J. Hill (2017): Phenology-Adaptive Pixel-Based Compositing using Optical Earth Observation Imagery. Remote Sensing of Environment 190, 331-347. DOI: 10.1016/j.rse.2017.01.002 A parametric compositing technique was employed to produce composites from very dense MODIS reflectance images (MOD09GA product, 1-2 day temporal resolution). Composites were generated for three phenological seasons: peak of season (POS), end of season (EOS) and minimum of season (MOS). Two different sets were produced: (1) phenology-adaptive composites that explicitly consider the land surface phenology of each pixel and (2) static composites that use a fixed and global target DOY representative for the seasons. The images are in Standard ENVI Format. Naming convention: 20050228_PBC_INF_zambia.dat - First 8 digits: Mean date of selected observations; the temporal sequence is POS, EOS, and MOS - PBC_INF / PBC_REF: composite criteria / reflectance composite The reflectance composites are 6-band (0.469µm, 0.555µm, 0.645µm, 0.859µm, 1.640µm, 2.130µm), 16bit bsq images. The composite criteria images are 4-band (number of observations, selected DOY, diff. to target DOY, diff. to target year), 16bit bsq images.
