The Land Processes Distributed Active Archive Center (LP DAAC) proudly
announces the public release of 2 NASA Making Earth System Data
Records for Use In Research Environments (MEaSUREs) data projects.
The NASA Web Enabled Landsat Data (WELD) collection was created
through PI David Roy at the SDSU GIScCE, and successfully released via
the LP DAAC on November 13th, 2013. WELD utilizes MODIS data and
methods to generate seamless, gap filled 30-meter Landsat mosaics with
per-pixel quality assessment information and derived land cover
characterization at weekly, monthly, seasonal, and annual time
The NASA Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM) V3.0 collection (Also
known as SRTM
Plus) was created through PI's Michael Kolbrick and Robert Crippen at
JPL, and successfully released on November 20th, 2013. SRTM was the
primary payload on the STS-99 mission of the Space Shuttle Endeavour,
which launched February 11, 2000 and ﬂew for 11 days.
NASA SRTM V3.0 has eliminated all voids with fill primarily from ASTER
GDEM2 (Global Digital Elevation Model Version 2), and secondarily from
USGS GMTED2010 - or USGS National Elevation Dataset (NED) for the
United States (except Alaska) and northernmost Mexico.
NASA SRTM V3.0 data are distributed in two detail levels: NASA SRTM1
with one-arc-second postings for the US and its territories, and NASA
SRTM3 sampled or averaged to three-arc-second postings for the world.
