Rock outcrop map of the Antarctic continent derived from Landsat 8 imagery
GB/NERC/BAS/PDC/00901

Summary

Abstract:
Shapefile map of exposed rock outcrops for the Antarctic continent. The map was produced via a new fully automated methodology for differentiating rock from snow, clouds and sea using Landsat 8 multispectral imagery. Data was merged with the existing Antarctic Digital Database rock outcrop dataset for areas for those areas where Landsat 8 tiles were unavailable (south of 82 deg 40 S).
