The dataset of position of the sampling plots and stripes was obtained in A1, A2, A3, L1, L2, L3, L4, L5 and L6 of the A'rou foci experimental area. The quadrates were changed from 4×4 into 3×3 subsites during the foci experimental period, with each one spanning a 30×30 m2 plot. The centers and corners of each subsite were collected. As for the sampling lines, samples were collected every 100 m along them from south to north. The points were named in the form of L1-1, indication No. 1 point in No. 1 line. The coordinates and elevation of each sampling point were included in the dataset in Excel format.
The dataset focuses on the distribution of sampling plots and stripes in the Yingke oasis and Huazhaizi desert steppe foci experimental areas. (1) YKLZYMD-the maize field plot (180m×180m) at Yingke Weather Station It matches No. 10 flight route. Five subplots were selected, including three maize subplots and 2 wheat subplots. The maize subplots, labeled as YKLZYMD01, YKLZYMD02 and YKLZYMD03, were planted in different directions with a ridge sturctrue, which was composed of single row of maizes and bare soils. The distance of adjacent maize rows, as well as the width of bare soil was 0.5m . YKLZYMD05 (2.46m×1m, along the ridge) was located in the northwest of the plot and interplanted with wheat and soy bean. YKLZYMDD06 was exclusively wheat, and 10 rows (1.5m) vertical to the ridge and 1m along the ridge were measured. This is a key experimental area for canopy spectrum, component reflectance spectra, BRDF, albedo, the photosynthetic rate, FPAR, structural parameters, vegetation coverage, the radiative temperature, surface emissivity, atmospheric parameters and soil moisture. (2) YKXMD-Yingke wheat plot (180m×170m) It matches No. 11 flight route. Wheat and maize were interplanted. Three subplots with the same size (3.4m * 3.4m) were selected for the measurement of vegetaion structural parameters, BRDF, the radiative temperature, vegetation coverage and soil moisture. (3) HZZHMZYMD-Huazhaizi maize plot (240m×240m) It is located between No. 9 and No. 10 flight routes. The maize seed dominates, and wheat, alfalfa and tomatoes were planted. 4 maize subplots and one wheat subplot were chosen to collect the canopy temperature, spectrum, structural parameters and vegetation coverage. (4) HZZHMYD1-Huazhaizi desert No. 1 plot (240m×240m) It is located within No. 4 flight route. 3 subplots (30m×30m) were chosen for reflectance spectra, BRDF, vegetation coverage, emissivity, the radiative temperature, soil moisture, atmospheric parameters by sunphotometer CE318 and surface roughness. In cooperation with experiments in Huazhaizi desert plots and Yingke weather station, simultaneous airborne multiangular thermal infrared camera&CCD-ground observations, simultaneous airborne hyperspectral imager (OMIS)-ground observations, simultaneous OMIS/TM/ASTER/Hyperion/CHRIS/ASAR-ground observations were all accomplished. (5) HZZHMYD2-Huazhaizi desert No. 2 plot It matches No. 5 flight route. Three subplots (10m×10m) for coverage and the radiative temperature and one (30m×30m) for simultaneous temperature and spectrum were chosen. (6) HZZHMYD3-Huazhaizi desert No. 3 plot (30m×30m) It is an intensive plot without simultaneous airporne or spaceborne measurement. (7) DJCYMYD-the maize field at the resort It is an intensive plot (30m×30m) with the maize seeds, mainly for the measurement of radiative temperature and soil moisture. (8) DJCDMD-the barley field at the resort It is mainly for radiative temperature data. (9) DJCDBC-the calibration field at the resort It is located at the ICBC resort. The reflectance spectra of the basketball court, the pool and the vegetation were collected used for radiative calibration of CCD camera in visible and near infrared spectra range. The dataset also includes geographic infomation of each sample point.
The dataset of setting of the sampling plots and stripes in the Linze station foci experimental area was as follows: (1) Wulidun farmland quadrates (90m×90m), which was divided into nine subplots (30m×30m). Numbering of Cold and Arid Regions Environmental and Engineering Research Institute was different from that of BNU, in which the former was 1-9 from south to north, and the latter was A-I from north to south. (2) the west-east desert strip, which was composed of 20 neighbouring pairs of subplots (30×30m). They were numbered S0-S20 from the south corner on and N0-N20 from the north corner on; the common corner points in the middle were numbered M0-M20. Corner points were measured during the satellite or airplane overpass. (3) the north-south desert strip, which was composed of nine non-conterminous subplots (40m×40m, numbered from A1-A9) at intervals of 60m. Corner points and center points were measured during the satellite or airplane overpass. (4) three quadrates (30m×30m) of the transit zone, LY06，LY07，LY08 strips. Samples were selected following the zigzag line from the northwest corner and numbered 1-9. (5) the poplar forest (90×90m), which was divided into 9 subplots (30m×30m). (6) 6 desert strips with 17 sample points each. (7) maize plots (3m×3m) inside Linze station. Data including coordinates of each sample point were archived as Excel files.
