The Terrestrial Development Index (TDI) quantifies the level of development (urban, agriculture, energy and mineral extraction and transmission, and transportation) based on the surface disturbance footprint. TDI values range from 0 to 100% and represent the total percentage of land surface occupied by the development footprint within a 1-kilometer (km) radius moving window.
