The GLS2005 data set is a collection of 9500 orthorectified leaf-on medium-resolution satellite images collected between 2004 and 2007 and covering the Earth's land masses. GLS2005 uses mainly Landsat 5 and gap-filled Landsat 7 data with EO-1 ALI and Terra ASTER data filling in any data holes.

This dataset contains images from just the L5 TM and L7 ETM+ sensors, and only the 6 bands that those two sensors have in common: 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, and 70.
