IceBridge L1B Thinned Flight Lines, Version 1
Data set id:
This is the most recent version of these data.
This data set contains simplified, or thinned, flight lines from NASA Operation IceBridge Greenland, Arctic, Antarctic, and Alaska missions. The thinning was performed using a Python library called Shapely. The full resolution flight line data were collected as part of Operation IceBridge funded aircraft survey campaigns. The following input data sets were used to generate this data set: * IceBridge LVIS POS/AV L1B Corrected Position and Attitude Data, Version 1 * IceBridge POS/AV L1B Corrected Position and Attitude Data, Version 1 * IceBridge UAF GPS/IMU L1B Corrected Position and Attitude Data, Version 1 * IceBridge GPS L1B Time-Tagged Real-Time Position and Attitude Solution, Version 1 The corresponding flight reports can be found in the IceBridge L1B Flight Reports (IPFLR1B) data set.
