Three data sets in the NASA’s Making Earth System Data Records for Use in Research Environments (MEaSUREs) program are now available in a new version from the NASA National Snow and Ice Data Center Distributed Active Archive Center (NSIDC DAAC). The new version, 1.1, corrects the location of the upper left pixel in each GeoTIFF file. The corrected location of the upper left pixel is the distance in meters from the north pole to the upper left corner of the upper left pixel, effectively shifting the location by one-half pixel to the upper left relative to their positions in the previous version. Only the geolocation metadata in each GeoTIFF has changed; the data array is the same as in the previous version.
