Impervious surface product of Qinghai-Tibet Plateau with 10m resolution (2018)

Impervious surface product of Qinghai-Tibet Plateau with 10m resolution (2018)

Data content: The data set products include impervious surface products with a resolution of 10 meters in the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, which can be used as a key parameter for related research on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau ecosystem. Data source and processing method: Product inversion is mainly based on Sentinel series data, considering joint features, combining depth spatial features, long-time NDVI and other exponential features, and topographic features, and using random forest model to achieve impervious surface information extraction. Data quality: The overall accuracy is high. Data application results and prospects: The data set will be continuously updated and can be used to further clarify the impact of human activities on the ecosystem of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau.

File naming and required software

File naming: The impervious surface data set is stored in Geotiff format in blocks, compressed by LZW, and the file name is "VAP_??_??_10m.tif", where the first ?? represents the latitude of the upper left corner of the corresponding image block, and the following ?? represents Corresponds to the longitude of the upper left corner of the image block. Data reading method: you can directly use any software that supports tif image to open; it is recommended to use QGIS, ArcGIS, ENVI and other geographic information related software to open.
