Long time series ecological background map of Qinghai Tibet Plateau (1990-2015)

Based on the medium resolution long time series remote sensing image Landsat, the data set obtained six periods of ecosystem type distribution maps of the Qinghai Tibet Plateau in 1990 / 1995 / 2002 / 2005 / 2010 / 2015 through image fusion, remote sensing interpretation and data inversion, and made the original ecological base map of the Qinghai Tibet Plateau in 25 years (1990-2015). According to the area statistics of various ecosystems in the Qinghai Tibet Plateau, the area of woodland and grassland decreased slightly, the area of urban land, rural residential areas and other construction land increased, the area of rivers, lakes and other water bodies increased, and the area of permanent glacier snow decreased from 1990 to 2015. The atlas can be used for the planning, design and management of ecological projects in the Qinghai Tibet Plateau, and can be used as a benchmark for the current situation of the ecosystem, to clarify the temporal and spatial pattern of major ecological projects in the Qinghai Tibet Plateau, and to reveal the change rules and regional differences of the pattern and function of the ecosystem in the Qinghai Tibet Plateau.


HiWATER: Land cover map in the core experimental area of flux observation matrix

The dataset contains vegetation type in the middle reaches of the Heihe River Basin, which was used to validate products from remote sensing. It was generated from investigating the land cover strips of CASI during 2012. Instruments: High-precision handheld GPS (2-3 m) and digital camera were used as main tools in the survey. Measurement method: Hierarchical classification is applied based on CASI data. According to various land types, pixel classifications is used for forest, grassland, bare land and building lands; in-situ observations and investigations are used for different crops. Dataset contains: land types, including maize, leek, poplar trees, cauliflower, bell pepper, potatoes, endive sprout, orchard, watermelon, kidney bean, pear orchard, shadow, and non-vegetation, except for 14 others which are not classified. Observation site: core experimental areas with 5*5 matrix structure in the middle reaches of the Heihe river basin Date: From 25 June in 2012 (UTC+8) on.


HiWATER: Vegetation Height product in the middle of the Heihe River Basin on July. 19, 2012

In July 19, 2012 (UTC+8), the airborne LIDAR data is acquired in the foci area in the Heihe,middle reaches, which can provide high spatial resolution (m) and high precision (20 cm) of the surface elevation information. Based on airborne LIDAR data processing, the land surface DEM, DSM and point cloud density map were generated. By subtracting DSM and DEM directly, a Vegetation height product in the middle reaches of the Heihe River Basin was obtained. The product overall accuracy is 88%.
