MEaSUREs Greenland Ice Mapping Project (GIMP) Land Ice and Ocean Classification Mask, Version 1 (NSIDC-0714)
This is the most recent version of these data.
This data set, part of the NASA Making Earth System Data Records for Use in Research Environments (MEaSUREs) program, provides a complete land ice and ocean classification mask for the Greenland ice sheet, that was mapped using a combination of USGS Landsat 7 ETM+ panchromatic band imagery, and the Canadian Space Agency's (CSA) RADARSAT-1 Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) amplitude images. See Greenland Ice Mapping Project (GIMP) for related data.

Data Access & Tools
Sample Data Image
The answer is yes. Below the image in this article, you will find sample code in IDL, MATLAB, and Python to read in a GeoTIFF file, extract the metadata, and create an image. The code has been tested with the following data products:
Many NSIDC DAAC data sets can be accessed using the NSIDC DAAC's Data Access Tool. This tool provides the ability to search and filter data with spatial and temporal constraints using a map-based interface. Users have the option to
We recommend using the Geospatial Data Abstraction Library (GDAL) to convert GeoTIFF files into a different format.
We recommend using the Geospatial Data Abstraction Library (GDAL) or a GIS to reproject geoTIFF files.
