TanDEM-X 90m DEM

Keywords: DLR, TDM, TanDEM-X, DEM, Digital Elevation Model, TDM-DEM-90m

Abstract:

TanDEM-X (TerraSAR-X add-on for Digital Elevation Measurements) is an Earth observation radar mission that consists of a SAR interferometer built by two almost identical satellites flying in close formation. With a typical separation between the satellites of 120 m to 500 m a global Digital Elevation Model (DEM) has been generated.

The TanDEM-X 90m DEM is a product variant of the global Digital Elevation Model (DEM) acquired in the frame of the German TanDEM-X mission between 2010 and 2014, and has a reduced pixel spacing of 3 arcseconds (arsec), which corresponds to 90m at the equator. It covers all Earth’s landmasses from pole to pole.

This map shows all 8 original TanDEM-X Information Layers as specified in the Product Specification:

  • TDM90 Elevation (DEM): The DEM elevation values represent the ellipsoidal heights relative to the WGS84 ellipsoid in the WGS84-G1150 datum.
  • TDM90 Height Error Map (HEM): The height error map (HEM) values represent for each DEM pixel the corresponding height error in form of the standard deviation.
  • TDM90 Amplitute Min/Mean (AMP/AM2): The amplitude mosaic AMP and AM2 layers are a by-product generated for further processings, e.g. water body detection or DEM filtering. They represent the mean (AMP) and minimum value (AM2) of all calibrated amplitude values from the contributing DEM scenes (in general between 2 and up to 10 scenes).
  • TDM90 Consistency Map (COM): The consistency mask (COM) indicates DEM pixels, which have height inconsistencies among the contributing DEM scenes.
  • TDM90 Coverage Map (COV): The coverage map (COV) indicates how many valid height values from different DEM acquisitions were available for mosaicking.
  • TDM90 Layover & Shadow Mask (LSM): The layover and shadow mask (LSM) is based on the SRTM-C DEM and the GLOBE DEM regarding the TanDEM-X geometry of each individual scene.
  • TDM90 Water Indication Mask (WAM): The water indication mask (WAM) layer represents the water bodies indentified during processing.

TanDEM-X PolarDEM 90m of Antarctica

Keywords: DLR, DFD, TanDEM-X, PolarDEM, Cryosphere, Polar, Antarctica, topography, DEM, editing

Abstract:

The TanDEM-X PolarDEM is a project developed by the German Remote Sensing Data Center (DFD) at the German Aerospace Center (DLR) within the activities of the TanDEM-X mission. It is a framework for the provision of derivatives of the global Digital Elevation Model (DEM) of the TanDEM-X mission for Polar Regions. The current version of the global TanDEM-X DEM represents an unedited surface model that still contains noisy or void DEM values, some data gaps and a compilation of several acquisition campaigns performed at different times. The derivatives currently include the edited DEM product described below and will be supplemented with single year coverages and penetration bias corrected DEMs in the future.

TanDEM-X PolarDEM 90m of Antarctica: This is a gap-free and edited version of the TanDEM-X 90m DEM. The TanDEM-X PolarDEM 90m of Antarctica is provided in Antarctic Polar Stereographic projection (EPSG:3031) with a pixel spacing of 90 meters. The DEM elevation values represent the ellipsoidal heights relative to the WGS84 ellipsoid. The majority of the data were acquired between April 2013 to September 2014. The TanDEM-X PolarDEM 90m of Antarctica is split into 4 tiles.

TanDEM-X Forest/Non-Forest Map

Keywords: DLR, EOC, Land, HR, TanDEM-X, Forest Map, Global Forest Map, TanDEM-X Global Forest

Abstract:

The TanDEM-X Forest/Non-Forest Map is a project developed by the Microwaves and Radar Institute at the German Aerospace Center (DLR), within the activities of the TanDEM-X mission. The goal is the derivation of a global forest/non-forest classification mosaic from TanDEM-X bistatic interferometric synthetic aperture radar (InSAR) data, acquired for the generation of the global digital elevation model (DEM) in Stripmap single polarization (HH) mode.

The TanDEM-X Forest/Non-Forest Map (FNF) has been generated by processing and mosaicking more than 500,000 TanDEM-X bistatic images acquired from 2011 until 2015. The map has a spatial resolution of 50 m x 50 m. Forested and non-forested areas are depicted in green and white, respectively. Water bodies are depicted in blue and black is used for identifying urban areas and invalid pixels.

SRTM X-SAR DEM

Keywords: DLR, SRTM, X-SAR, DEM, HEM, Hillshade, Elevation

Abstract:

This map contains elevation products at a spatial resolution of approximately 25 m x 25 m covering the globe between latitudes 60� North and 58� South. These products were generated from data collected by the German-Italian interferometric X-band radar system (X-SAR) onboard the Space Shuttle Endeavour during the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM) between February 11 and February 22, 2000. The data have been processed into digital elevation models using radar interferometry, an innovative way for extracting surface height from the phase difference between two synthetic aperture radar datasets - a procedure somewhat resembling stereo viewing. The original tiled elevation products have been mosaicked into a single global elevation layer from which additional products have been derived. Shaded reliefs in grayscale and with color-coded elevation values provide a 3D impression of the global topography while a global error map, derived mainly from phase and baseline stability, helps to assess the relative accuracy of the measured elevation values.

CORINE Land Cover

Keywords: DLR, CORINE, CORINE1990, CORINE2000, CORINE2006, Land Cover, Land Cover Change, Germany

Abstract:

The objective of the pan-European project CORINE Land Cover (CLC) is the provision of a unique and comparable data set of land cover for Europe. It is part of the European Union programme CORINE (Coordination of Information on the Environment). The mapping of the land cover and land use was performed on the basis of satellite remote sensing images on a scale of 1:100,000. The first CLC data base CLC1990, which was finalised in the 1990s, consistently provided land use information comprising 44 classes, out of which 37 classes are relevant in Germany.

In the project CORINE Land Cover 2000 (CLC2000), an update of the database and a mapping of changes have been accomplished using the year 2000 as reference. The project CLC2000, which resulted in area-wide land use and land use change maps of Germany, was led by the German Remote Sensing Data Center (DFD) of the German Aerospace Center (DLR) on behalf of the Federal Environmental Agency (UBA). With CLC2000 a reliable, objective and comparable data base for the description of the current situation (at 2000) and the analysis of changes during the decade between 1990 and 2000 is available.

Integrated in the European GMES activities, a further update of CORINE Land Cover was done in 37 European countries with the reference year 2006. The project CLC2006 in Germany was again performed by the German Remote Sensing Data Center, on behalf of the Federal Environment Agency (UBA). The update CORINE Land Cover 2006 for Germany is available since February 2010. Besides the status in 2006, an analysis of the changes between 2000 and 2006 is available.

MODIS-EU Daily Mosaic

Keywords: DLR, EOC, MODIS-EU, Orthoimagery, TERRA, AQUA

Abstract:

The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) is a key instrument aboard the American satellites Terra and Aqua. The MODIS-EU image mosaic is a seamless true color composite of all Terra and Aqua passes received at DLR during one day. Daily and Near Real Time (NRT) products are available. For the composite, MODIS channels 1, 4, 3 are used. The channels are re-projected, radiometrically enhanced, and seamlessly stitched to obtain a visually appealing result.

Terra passes from north to south across the equator in the morning, while Aqua passes the equator south to north in the afternoon. Both MODIS instruments are viewing the entire Earth surface every 1 to 2 days, acquiring data in 36 spectral bands. These data will improve our understanding of global dynamics and processes occurring on the land, in the oceans, and in the lower atmosphere. MODIS is playing a vital role in the development of validated, global, interactive Earth system models able to predict global change accurately enough to assist policy makers in making sound decisions concerning the protection of our environment.

MODIS-DE Mosaic

Keywords: DLR, MODIS-DE, TERRA, AQUA, Orthoimagery

Abstract:

MODIS (or Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer) is a key instrument aboard the Terra (EOS AM) and Aqua (EOS PM) satellites. Terra's orbit around the Earth is timed so that it passes from north to south across the equator in the morning, while Aqua passes south to north over the equator in the afternoon. Terra MODIS and Aqua MODIS are viewing the entire Earth's surface every 1 to 2 days, acquiring data in 36 spectral bands, or groups of wavelengths (see MODIS Technical Specifications). These data will improve our understanding of global dynamics and processes occurring on the land, in the oceans, and in the lower atmosphere. MODIS is playing a vital role in the development of validated, global, interactive Earth system models able to predict global change accurately enough to assist policy makers in making sound decisions concerning the protection of our environment (from http://modis.gsfc.nasa.gov/).

This mosaic has been generated from TERRA and AQUA products between 30 Sept. to 03 Oct. 2011

The MODIS data used in this product were obtained through the online Data Pool at the NASA Land Processes Distributed Active Archive Center (LP DAAC), USGS/Earth Resources Observation and Science (EROS) Center, Sioux Falls, South Dakota (https://lpdaac.usgs.gov/get_data).

World Settlement Footprint (WSF) - Landsat-8/Sentinel-1 - Global, 2015

Keywords: global, urbanization, land, settlement extent, Landsat-8, Sentinel-1

Abstract:

The World Settlement Footprint (WSF) 2015 is a 10m resolution binary mask outlining the extent of human settlements globally derived by means of 2014-2015 multitemporal Landsat-8 and Sentinel-1 imagery (of which ~217,000 and ~107,000 scenes have been processed, respectively).

In particular, the rationale is that the temporal dynamics of human settlements over time are sensibly different than those of all other non-settlement information classes. Hence, given all the multitemporal images available over a region of interest in the selected time interval, key temporal statistics (i.e., temporal mean, minimum, maximum, etc.) are extracted for:

a) the original backscattering value in the case of radar data; and
b) different spectral indices (e.g., vegetation index, built-up index, etc.) derived after performing cloud masking in the case of optical imagery.

Next, different classification schemes based on Support Vector Machines (SVMs) are separately applied to the optical and radar temporal features, respectively, and, finally, the two outputs are properly combined together. To quantitatively assess the high accuracy and reliability of the layer, an extensive validation exercise has been carried out in collaboration with Google based on a huge amount of ground-truth samples (i.e., 900,000) labelled by crow-sourcing photointerpretation. In particular, a statistically robust and transparent protocol has been defined following the state-of-the-art practices currently recommended in the literature.

GUF® - Global Urban Footprint® v1 - EPSG:3857 (WGS 84 / Pseudo-Mercator)

Keywords: Land Cover, Land, Urbanization, Global Mapping, Settlement Patterns, TerraSAR-X, TanDEM-X, Texture, GUF, Global Urban Footprint

Abstract:

The GUF® maps show two land cover categories (e. g. in a B&W representation): Built-up areas (vertical structures only) in black and non-built-up surfaces in white; in addition, areas of no coverage by theTSX/TDX satellites (NoData) are coded in grey (most parts of the oceans). The focus on two categories clearly highlights the settlement patterns, improving the ability to analyze and compare them with other built-up areas across the world, in an urban or in a rural context. Unlike previous approaches, the fully automatic evaluation procedure detects the characteristic vertical structures of human habitations are primarily buildings. In contrast, areas used for infrastructure purposes, like roads, are not mapped. This is why broad urban canyons or expanses of greenery within the cities are shown as white corridors and patches.

GSP - Global SnowPack Daily

Keywords: DLR, EOC, Land, Global Snowpack, Snow Cover Daily

Abstract:

Information about extent, beginning, duration and melt of snow cover are important for climate research, hydrological applications, flood prediction and weather forecast. Climate change is influencing the characteristics and duration of snow cover, affecting landscape, hydrology, flora, fauna, and humans in equal measure. Therefore, precise information about the different snow parameters and their development over time are particularly important for various research fields.

The Global SnowPack is a dataset containing information about snow cover parameters on a global scale. Overall (September 1st - August 31st of the next calendar year), early season (September 1st - January 15th of the next calendar year), and late season (January 16th - August 31st) snow cover duration are included and allow detailed insights in the characteristics of this most relevant part of Earths cryosphere. The parameters are being derived from daily, operational MODIS snow cover products for every year since 2000. The negative effects of polar darkness and cloud coverage are compensated by applying several processing steps. Thereby, a unique global dataset can be provided that is characterized by its high accuracy, a spatial resolution of 500 meter and continuous future enhancements.
