Datasets of Annual and 33-year water body frequency maps of the contiguous US from 1984 to 2016
There are 50 5-by-5 degree tiles covering the entire CONUS. In each zipped tile folder, there are 33 annual water body frequency images (e.g. freq_2016_-070_040.tif), one 33-year water body frequency image (e.g. 33YearFreq_1984_2016_-070_040.tif), and one 33-year good observation image (e.g. 33YearGoodObs_1984_2016_-070_040.tif).
