WATER: Dataset of setting of the sampling plots and stripes in the Linze grassland foci experimental area Chinese Version

The dataset of setting of the sampling plots and stripes in the Linze grassland foci experimental area from May to Jul. 2008 list as follows:

Plots A (reed), B (saline), C (saline), D (alfalfa), E (barley) and H were set according to the spatial resolution of each overpass sensor. 49 points at intervals of 60m were located in each of the first five plots (360m×360m) and numbered such as A01. In order to synchronize with ASAR, PALSAR, ASTER and airborne OMIS and WiDAS, subplots of 120m×120m were arranged in A, B, C, D and E, and the points in these subplots were chosen at intervals of 30m. As for plot H (1.8km×1.8km), there were 64 points at intervals of 250m to synchronize with MODIS. Besides, there were still seven sample lines (200m from one to another), with 25 points at intervals of 100m each (L3-11 indicating No. 11 sample point along L3); and two PR2 plots (3Grid×3Grid) with points numbered like PR11 at intervals of 30m and two PR2 lines (11 points). All coordinates were archived in Excel format.
