Landsat normalized difference water index (NDWI) products over the Tibetan Plateau (1980s-2019)
1) File name rules: the NDWI result of each scense is stored in a floder including the NDWI band, QA bands, metadata, and browser; the named rule of a folder is presented as "satellite- sensor-path-row-imaging date-LSR-BRDF-NDWI",for example, L5-TM-115-026-19840418-LSR-BRDF-NDWI;the NDWI is stored as GeoTIFF format and its named rule is presented as "satellite- sensor-path-row-imaging date-LSR-BRDF-NDWI.TIF", for example, "L5-TM-115-026-19840418-LSR-BRDF-NDWI.TIF". 2) How to use the dataset:the NDWI results can be opened by ArcGIS, envi, QGIS and so on, the NDWI results are multiplied 10000 to become16 bit integer from the original floating-point type in the range of 0 ~ 1 , so it needs to be mutiplied 0.0001 when used, and the background filling value is -9999, and the "LZW" lossless compression is carried out.
