Global 30-m impervious-surface dynamic dataset in 2000-2020 (GISD30_2000-2020)

Dataset Overview

How to accurately capture the impervious surface dynamics from time series remote sensing imagery has always been the focus and hotspot of urban and environmental remote sensing research. To tackle this issue, a high confidence training dataset at the global scale was created by utilizing prior land cover data according to a series of extraction rules. The spectral generalization approach and a sample migration strategy were developed to achieve long-term dynamic monitoring of impervious surfaces. The GISD30 dataset was ultimately produced by classifying the time-series Landsat reflectance imagery and integrating the local adaptive random forest model and the spectral generalization approach.

Naming Convention

The product is stored using the WGS84 coordinate system (EPSG: 4326) with a spatial resolution of 30-meter. The output format is GeoTIFF. Each tiled file covers a 5o ×5o geographical grid corresponding to 18,554×18,554 pixels. The dataset contains a total of 961 tiled files. For accurate usage and reference, the GISD30 files are named in the following format: GISD30_1985-2020_E/W***N/S***.tif,where 'E/W***N/S***'is the longitude and latitude coordinates found in the upper left corner of the tile data. Each tiled file contains a single-layer map that showcases the surface status with 0 and 1, representing pervious surfaces and impervious surfaces, respectively.
