Since 1972, the joint NASA/USGS Landsat program is the only U.S. satellite system designed and operated to repeatedly make multi-spectral observations of the global land surface at a moderate scale that shows both natural and human-induced change. Landsat data helps land managers and policymakers make informed decisions about our natural resources and the environment.
