Murray Global Intertidal Change Data Mask (UQ/murray/Intertidal/v1_1/data_mask)

Version v1.1

The Murray Global Intertidal Change Dataset contains global maps of tidal flat
ecosystems produced via a supervised classification of 707,528 Landsat
Archive images. Each pixel was classified into tidal flat, permanent water
or other with reference to a globally distributed set of training data.

The classification was implemented along the entire global coastline
between 60° North and 60° South from 1 January 1984 to 31 December 2016.
The image collection consists consists of a time-series of 11 global maps
of tidal flats at 30m pixel resolution for set time-periods (1984−1986;
1987−1989; 1990−1992; 1993−1995; 1996−1998; 1999−2001; 2002−2004;
2005−2007; 2008−2010; 2011−2013; 2014−2016)

Flag indicating the spatial limits of the implementation of the tidal flat
classifier as defined by altitudinal (+100m) and bathymetric (-100m) limits.
