Earth Resources Observation and Science (EROS) Center

Data and Tools

EROS is home to the world's largest collection of remotely sensed images of the Earth’s land surface and the primary source of Landsat satellite images and data products. NASA’s Land Processes Distributed Active Archive Center (LP DAAC) is also located at EROS. Use the links below to explore and access our data holdings.

LCMAP Sample Products

USGS LCMAP is the foundation for an integrated land change science framework. This new generation of land change and land cover data are provided to the science community as a suite of products. The products are developed from 30-m Landsat TM, ETM+, and OLI for the years 1985 to 2017. The provisional product suite includes five land cover products and five spectral change products.

Near-Real-Time Cheatgrass Monitoring

The USGS Earth Resources Observation and Science (EROS) Center produces near-real-time estimates of annual herbaceous land cover for the Great Basin, Snake River Plain, Wyoming, and contiguous areas in the United States. Estimates are based on enhanced Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (eMODIS) Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) data at 250-meter resolution.

Topobathymetric model of Mobile Bay, Alabama

Topobathymetric Digital Elevation Models (DEMs) are a merged rendering of both topography (land elevation) and bathymetry (water depth) that provides a seamless elevation product useful for inundation mapping, as well as for other earth science applications, such as the development of sediment-transport, sea-level rise, and storm-surge models.

The Relative Impacts of Climate and Land-use Change on Conterminous United States Bird Species from 2001 to 2075

Species distribution models often use climate data to assess contemporary and/or future ranges for animal or plant species. Land use and land cover (LULC) data are important predictor variables for determining species range, yet are rarely used when modeling future distributions.
