Multi-Resolution Land Characteristics/Monitoring Trends in Burn Severity 2001 - Reflectance

Metadata Updated: November 12, 2020

Multi-Resolution Characteristics 2001 AT-Sensor Reflectance Dataset is a second-generation federal consortium to create an updated pool of nation-wide Landsat imagery, and derive a second-generation National Land Cover Database (NLCD 2001). The MRLC 2001 data cover the United States, including Alaska and Hawaii. Multi-temporal scenes may also be available, depending on the location. Most of the images are of high quality, and cloud cover is generally less than ten percent. The data will also include a 30-meter Digital Elevation Model (DEM) for all scenes that do not include the Canadian or Mexican borders. All MRLC 2001 data are provided with the following standardized set of processing parameters: Resolution: 30 m (most bands) 15 m (Landsat 7 band 8) Projection: Albers Equal-Area Conic Datum: NAD83 Resampling :cubic convolution Format NDF (NLAPS Data format) Media Download
