DOWNLOADS

All dataset downloads are raster images stored in GeoTIFF format at 30 meter spatial resolution. Values have been scaled from floating point to 16-bit signed integer for size considerations but file downloads can still be quite large (>10GB). Nodata values are -9999. Map projection is WGS84 (EPSG:4326).
