Data Set ID:

IceBridge-Related DMS-Derived L4 Sea Ice Surface Cover Classification Orthorectified Images, Version 1

This data set contains reprocessed, orthorectified images depicting labels that indicate the sea ice surface category, created by processing IceBridge DMS L0 Raw Imagery with the Open Source Sea-ice Processing Algorithm. Orthorectification was done using digital elevation models from the IceBridge DMS L3 Ames Stereo Pipeline Photogrammetric DEM collection. The standard (non-orthorectified) images are available as IceBridge-Related DMS-Derived L4 Sea Ice Surface Cover Classification Images.

This is the most recent version of these data.
