Sentinel-3A OLCI Global Binned Inland Waters (ILW) Data, version 3

Metadata Updated: December 6, 2023

The Inland Waters dataset (ILW) provides data for lakes and other water bodies across the contiguous United States (CONUS) and Alaska. ILW significantly reduces the processing effort required by end users and is a standardized community resource for lake and reservoir algorithm development and performance assessment. The data is provided for 15,450 CONUS waterbodies with a size of at least one 300 m pixel and over 2,300 resolvable lakes with sizes greater than three 300 m pixels. Alaska has 5,874 lakes resolvable lakes. ILW was developed in collaboration with the Cyanobacteria Assessment Network (CyAN). Additional inland water details and resources, including maps of resolvable lakes and additional inland water products, such as true color imagery, are available at the CyAN site.
