Multi-spectral unmanned aerial system imagery, S6, south-west Greenland, July 2017: Levels 2 (ground reflectance) and 3 (broadband albedo and surface type classification)
GB/NERC/BAS/PDC/01293

Summary

Abstract:
This dataset consists of orthomosaics created from flights of an unmanned aerial system imaging platform at S6 on the south-west Greenland K-transect during July 2017. Level-2 orthomosaics consist of (1) ground reflectance at 5 spectral bands, and (2) digital elevation models (only for 2017-07-20 and 2017-07-21). Level-3 orthomosaics consist of (1) broadband albedo calculated using a narrowband-to-broadband approximation and (2) surface type classification into snow, clean ice, light algae, heavy algae, cryoconite and water, as determined by a supervised classification algorithm. Training data ingested by the classification algorithm are also provided.

Funding was provided by the NERC standard grant NE/M021025/1.
