April 3, 2017 – Upcoming Changes to Landsat Pre-Collection Processing

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 datasets will no longer be populated with new data.

Users are strongly encouraged to use the Landsat Collection 1 datasets, as eventually all Pre-Collection datasets will be removed from EarthExplorer
