Multi-spectral unmanned aerial system imagery, UPE_U, north-west Greenland, July 2018: Levels 2 (ground reflectance) and 3 (broadband albedo and surface type classification)
GB/NERC/BAS/PDC/01294

Summary

Abstract:
This dataset consists of orthomosaics created from flights of an unmanned aerial system imaging platform at UPE_U in north-west Greenland on 24 July 2018. The Level-2 orthomosaics consist of (1) ground reflectance at 5 spectral bands, and (2) a digital elevation model. 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 which was trained on measurements collected at S6, K-transect, south-west Greenland.

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