This dataset contains the image map used for mapping snowlines for the paper:

De Angelis, Hernán. "Hypsometry and sensitivity of the mass balance to changes in equilibrium-line altitude: the case of the Southern Patagonia Icefield." Journal of Glaciology 60.219 (2014): 14-28.

The image map was compiled by averaging seven cloud-free images acquired by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on 5, 16 and 17 February 2002; 5, 6 and 7 February 2004; and 10 March 2004.

The dataset contains three images:

- HPS-MODIS-543RGB-2002-4_base-image_geotiff.tif
geocoded GeoTIFF image

- HPS-MODIS-543RGB-2002-4_base-image.png
same as above, but as simple PNG

- HPS-MODIS-543RGB-2002-4_glacier-inventory.png
same as above, with glacier inventory and snowlines (with error bounds) superimposed, as described in the paper.
