The second glacier inventory dataset of Pamirs , China (Version 1.0) (2009)

The study uses Landsat TM/ETM+, Terra ASTER and other optical remote sensing data before and after 2009. After plane correction and orthorectification, the glacier analysis information of western China in 2009 was extracted by automatic extraction and expert intervention revision methods, and was verified by field glacier investigation team.

This dataset is the second glacier inventory dataset of Pamirs in China. it contains the following attributes: glacier name, first-level watershed inventory, second-level watershed coding, third-level watershed coding, GLIMS name, glacier coordinates, glacier elevation, highest elevation, lowest elevation, glacier area, glacier perimeter, glacier height zone distribution, glacier uncertainty information, etc.
