Version 4.0 by region:

The Randolph Glacier Inventory, a global inventory of glacier outlines, may be used freely with due acknowledgement. It is intended for the estimation of total ice volumes and glacier mass changes at global and large-regional scales. It is supplemental to the Global Land Ice Measurements from Space initiative (GLIMS). Production of the RGI was motivated by the Fifth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC AR5). Future updates will be made to the RGI and the GLIMS Glacier Database in parallel during a transition period. As all these data are incorporated into the GLIMS Glacier Database and as download tools are developed to obtain GLIMS data in the RGI data format, the RGI will be phased out.
