  <dc:description>This dataset contains a subset data from the Belgian Science Policy Office funded “Congo basin eco-climatological data recovery and valorisation" project (COBECORE, contract BR/175/A3/COBECORE).

The data included is curated and pre-processed aerial survey imagery as used in a a land-use land-cover change analysis "Historical aerial surveys map long-term changes of forest cover and structure in the central Congo Basin".

 The dataset includes:

	the pre-processed images (aerial_images.tar.gz)
	the meta-data associated with the aerial images (flight_paths*)
	the final orthomosaic (yangambi_orthomosaic.tif)
