LBA Regional Boundary for the Legal Amazon of Brazil, 8-km

Metadata Updated: May 2, 2019

The Legal Amazon of Brazil is defined by law to include the states of Acre, Amapa, Amazonas, Para, Rondonia, Roraima, Mato Grosso, Maranhao, and Tocantins [Fundacao Instituto Brasileiro de Geografia e Estatistica (IBGE) 1991]. This is the definition used in generating the Legal Amazon mask. The 8-km Legal Amazon mask was generated by Christopher Potter at the Ecosystem Science and Technology Branch of the Earth Science Division at NASA Ames Research Center (Potter and Brooks-Genovese 1999). The mask was generated from the Digital Chart of the World available from Environmental Systems Research Institute, Inc. (ESRI). The mask is available in ASCII GRID format. The README file accompanying the mask has more information regarding data format. More information can be found at ftp://daac.ornl.gov/data/lba/human_dimensions/legal_amazon_mask/comp/legamazon_readme.pdf.
