Permanent open surface water areas in Nenets Autonomous Okrug, Russian Federation [Yamin-Pasternak]

This dataset consists of annual maps of permanent water body detections for the period January 1, 2004 to December 31, 2009. These maps were produced to identify water surfaces from remotely sensed data and demonstrate the integration of the remotely sensed imagery data acquired by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) sensors with data on human activity at the local communities level. The GIS mapping data is in shapefile format. The shapefiles are derived from .HDF files of MODIS scenes covering the region. These files represent the mapping of open surface water bodies and the ground. This dataset is part of the Pacific Marine Arctic Regional Synthesis (PacMARS) Project.
