Mediterranean Landuse Dynamics Interactive Map Server

 View the Mediterranean Landuse ArcIMS website

 The ArcIMS currently displays only regional data, however ASTER satellite imagery, topography and other relevant project data will be added.

ArcGIS Shapefiles

Download all shapefiles for the Jordan Valley region, Spain or the Mediterranean region

*Shapefiles for Spain and Jordan are projected to UTM 30N & 36N respectively. Mediterranean region data are in WGS-1984 

ArcHydro was used to create watershed maps for these regions using DEM's.  For more information on this ArcMap tool, see below

ASTER VIS/Near-IR Satellite image (3-2-1) of the Jordan River Valley

Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER)

The data for this project is stored in the shared drive in the Sagunto server in the respective folder (Jordan or Spain under 'Imagery').  Level 1a and 1b data exist here, as well as 1b data that has been georeferenced using ENVI 4.0 in both geotiff and ESRI grid formats.
