High resolution surface morphology of Kuoqionggangri Glacier (2020-2021)

High resolution surface morphology of Kuoqionggangri Glacier (2020-2021)

The dataset includes three high-resolution DSM data as well as Orthophoto Maps of Kuqionggangri Glacier, which were measured in September 2020, June 2021 and September 2021. The dataset is generated using the image data taken by Dajiang Phantom 4 RTK UAV, and the products are generated through tilt photogrammetry technology. The spatial resolution of the data reaches 0.15 m. This dataset is a supplement to the current low-resolution open-source topographic data, and can reflect the surface morphological changes of Kuoqionggangri Glacier from 2020 to 2021. The dataset helps to accurately study the melting process of Kuoqionggangri Glacier under climate change.

File naming and required software

The data of the three periods are stored in folders named by time in the compressed package. The file names of the DSM data and orthophoto data contain the words "DSM" and "transparent_mosaic" respectively. The data is in TIFF format and can be opened using ArcGIS and other software.
