All of the used data in the paper were collected in the geodatabase which named the Glacier Changes Geodatabase in the folder. The brief descriptions for each kind of data are showing as following: 1.ablation_polygon The polygons in this feature dataset was the ablation zone of the glaciers in 2000, 2010 and 2015. 2. glaciers_polygon The polygons in this feature dataset was the outlines of the glaciers in 1980, 2000, 2010 and 2015. 3. debris_cover_2015 This polygon was the debris outlines of glaciers in 2015. 4. glacial_lake_2015 This polygon was the outlines of glacial lakes in 2015. 5. streamline This line feature was the center streamline of the glaciers with the larger area (>5km2). 6. velocity_2004_yearly & velocity_2015_yearly These data were the yearly glacier surface velocity in 2004 and 2015. 7. dh_8015_yearly & dh_8000_yearly & dh_0010_yearly & dh_1015_yearly & dh_1011_yearly & dh_1112_yearly & dh_1213_yearly & dh_1314_yearly & dh_1415_yearly These data were the yearly glacier surface elevation change rates in the time interval.
