- CryoClim 
Glacier Area Outline (GAO) for mainland Norway from the period 1999-2006, using Landsat TM/ETM+ satellite images. A semi-automatic band ratio method was applied. Totally 12 satellite Landsat scenes from the period 1999-2006 were analysed. Many smaller polygons which had been classified as possible snowfields due to size, shape or due to uncertainty regarding ice content were not assigned IDs and were therefore not included. This dataset is a contribution to Cryoclim.
