Abstract

Landsat data for Cyprus, East Spain and West Spain is available from Landsat 5 and 7. The data were obtained by the Landmap project from donations by various academic institutions. The Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC) funded Landmap service which ran from 2001 to July 2014 collected and hosted a large amount of earth observation data for the majority of the UK. After removal of JISC funding in 2013, the Landmap service is no longer operational, with the data now held at the NEODC.

Data collected and prepared by the Landmap team before a copy of the data were obtained by NEODC directly from Landmap.

File Format:
Band 1-5,7 imagery is available in a single .img file for each collection shown above. The .img format can be opened in most earth observation image processing software including open/free software such as Erdas ER viewer or Basic ERS & Envisat (A) ATSR and Meris Toolbox (BEAM). img files are raster image files created by ERDAS IMAGINE that contain one or more layers, called bands, which include multiple image tiles that comprise the image. The data folders are labelled as l?med_ppp_rr_ddmmyyyy where ? is either 5 or 7 corresponding to Landsat 5 and 7 respectively, ppp is the satellite path number, rr is the row number, and ddmmyyyy is the date of collection. See the NASA page on the Landsat Worldwide Reference System for more information about paths and rows.

The .img format can be opened in most earth observation image processing software including open/free software such as Erdas ER viewer or Basic ERS & Envisat (A) ATSR and Meris Toolbox (BEAM). img files are raster image files created by ERDAS IMAGINE that contain one or more layers, called bands, which include multiple image tiles that comprise the image.

Software

Basic ERS & Envisat (A) ATSR and Meris Toolbox (BEAM): BEAM is an open-source toolbox and development platform for viewing, analysing and processing of remote sensing raster data. Originally developed to facilitate the utilisation of image data from Envisat's optical instruments, BEAM now supports a growing number of other raster data formats such as GeoTIFF and NetCDF as well as data formats of other Earth Observation (EO) sensors such as Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS), Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR), AVNIR, Polarised Radiation Imaging and Spectroscopy Mission (PRISM) and Compact High Resolution Imaging Spectrometer (CHRIS). Various data and algorithms are supported by dedicated extension plug-ins.

Erdas ER viewer, available free of charge, can be used to open raster image formats such as TIFF, GeoTiff, IMG, ECW, ERS, ALG, DAT and many more, and is capable of handling large file sizes.
