Ancillary Products  [top]

Ancillary data products are provided on the Ancillary Data Web page. These data sets were derived from external data sources and then gridded to the EASE-Grid. These data sets help to answer questions like what percentage of the EASE-Grid pixels are a particular type of land cover classification and what is the average elevation at each EASE-Grid pixel.
