May 26, 2017 - Notice of CFMask Discontinuation from Landsat Higher-Level Data Products

Starting June 2, 2017, users will no longer be able to order CFMask processing for Landsat Collection 1 Higher-Level data products via the ESPA on-demand interface. 

Equivalent information is now available in the “pixel_qa band”, which is included with all Higher-Level products.

For more information on the pixel_qa band, see the Product Characteristics sections of the Landsat 4-7 and Landsat 8 Surface Reflectance Product Guides.

The CFMask algorithm now runs with all Landsat 4-8 Collection 1 Level-1 data products with the results represented within the Landsat Level-1 Quality Assessment (QA) Band.
