Freely available remote sensing data and GIS datasets
One of the biggest issues with setting up a spatial project is to get base data to work with. I thought it would be helpful for forum members if we could list good sources of freely available datasets, I will start by listing some of the best links that I have found.
Landsat 8 Data from the USGS. http://landsat.usgs.gov/LDCM_Landsat8.php
Land cover data including elevation from Global Land Cover Facility: http://www.landcover.org/data/
