Geothermal mapping at Yellowstone National Park

We have produced a 60/30m-resolution raster map of the geothermal areas of western central Yellowstone National Park. The map was produced using Landsat ETM+ remote sensing technology, in combination with terrain data, and delineates 15 classes of varying thermal intensity.

The map is web-published here in two versions (relief background & land cover background), with an accompanying report:
