Global Footprints

The Global Footprints image is a visualization of the GoLIVE Landsat 8 footprints over the entire globe. Spatial coverage is limited to Landsat 8 scenes which capture land ice features with a coterminous area greater than 5 square kilometers. The Randolph Glacier Inventory (RGI) is used in creating the GoLIVE list of Landsat 8 path/row scenes which satisfy this permanent land ice area threshold.
