April 2017 - Landsat Pre-Collection Processing Change

Reminder: Upcoming Changes to Landsat Pre-Collection Inventory

Effective April 30, 2017, newly-acquired Landsat 7 ETM+ and Landsat 8 OLI/TIRS scenes will be processed into the Landsat Collection 1 inventory structure only; Landsat Pre-Collection inventory will no longer be populated with newly-acquired data.

Users are strongly encouraged to download Landsat Collection 1 data (www.usgs.gov/land-resources/nli/landsat/landsat-collections-level-1), as the Landsat Pre-Collection inventory will eventually be removed from EarthExplorer (https://earthexplorer.usgs.gov). The discontinuation of Landsat Pre-Collection inventory availability will be communicated to the Landsat user community once a date has been determined.
