Landsat Archive Dashboard

April 27, 2022


The Landsat Archive Dashboard provides interactive map views of Landsat Collection 2 products per WRS-1 or WRS-2 by Path/Row. There are three Landsat archive maps: Landsat 4 – 9 daytime, Landsat 4 – 9 nighttime, and Landsat 1 – 3. A product summary statistics page is also provided for Landsat 1 – 9. Maps and the statistics page can be filtered on multiple categories, such as spacecraft ID, sensor ID, year acquired, processing level, and collection category. 

As this is a large database, please expect and allow for extended load times.

The data is updated daily at 10:00 AM UTC.

How to Use the Landsat Archive Dashboard

The Landsat 4 - 9 Daytime and Nighttime maps are based on Worldwide Reference System 2 (WRS-2) global notation system and the Landsat 1 - 3 map is based on World Reference System 1 (WRS-1) global notation system. WRS-1 and WRS-2 enable a user to inquire about satellite imagery over any portion of the world by specifying a nominal scene center designated by Path and Row numbers. The combination of a Path number and a Row number uniquely identifies a nominal scene center. The Path number is always given first, followed by the Row number.

The colors on the maps show detail about the number of products per Path/Row. Hover details are shown for Path/Row reference and number of products per Path/Row. The data is filtered on Spacecraft ID, Sensor, Year Acquired, Collection Category, and Processing Level. The Landsat 4 - 9 Daytime and Landsat 1 -3 maps are filtered to only display daytime, descending acquisitions. The Landsat 4 - 9 Nighttime map is filtered to only display night-time ascending acquisitions.


Downloading Scene Metadata from Landsat Archive Dashboard:

When filtered to 10,000 scenes or less, users can select the download icon in the bottom right corner of the dashboard and select "Data" to download scene metadata. Users interested in larger metadata downloads should use the Landsat Bulk Metadata download tool.

Step 2

From the download options select "Data." If the "Data" option is grayed out, filter out more products. Use "Data" from the downloads options instead of "Crosstab" to obtain individual product information from the filtered results.
