The Randolph Glacier Inventory (RGI 6.0) is a global inventory of digital vector outlines for glaciers and glacier complexes with a limited number of attributes. The dataset combines available outlines from the GLIMS, DCW, and WGI datasets as well as from many other (often unpublished) sources by using the highest quality version in each region.
