Landsat 2 Storymap

After launch in 1975, Landsat 2 began to collect remote sensing data. Outliving its one-year design, Landsat 2 achieved seven years of operation. With two Landsats in orbit, scientists gleaned additional views of the planet.

Landsat: Launching into a New Year

This year was huge for the Landsat Program. Here are three major Landsat events from 2021. Use the map to explore the stories we've shared with you this year.

LandsatLook

Landsatlook visualization client enables users rapid online viewing and create dynamic custom mosaics from scenes within the Landsat archive for an area of interest. Allows users to customize their mosaic using three band combinations, select spectral indices and quality assessment band filtering.  

Landsat 9 Road to Launch

Launched on September 27th, 2021, Landsat 9 is a partnership between NASA and the U.S. Geological Survey. Learn about the process of building Landsat 9 and how it will extend Landsat's unbroken record of our planet to over half a century.

Landsat ARD Tile Conversion Tool

The Landsat Analysis Ready Data (ARD) Tile Conversion Tool converts a single Landsat WRS-2 path/row or latitude/longitude coordinates into the corresponding Landsat ARD tile, displays it on the map, and lists them below the map. 

ESPA On-Demand Interface

The USGS Earth Resources Observation and Science (EROS) Center Science Processing Architecture (ESPA) On-Demand Interface is used to request processing and services for Landsat Science Products and some MODIS archives. 

EarthExplorer Bulk Download Application

The Bulk Download Application is an easy-to-use tool for downloading large quantities of satellite imagery and geospatial data.

Once scenes are added to a Bulk Order via Earth Explorer, the Bulk Download Application can be used to automatically retrieve them with little to no user interaction.

EarthExplorer Scene List Upload

The File List Ordering Tool allows text file, metadata export, and scene list uploads for more effective downloading and/or ordering for all datasets visible on EarthExplorer.  User login required.

EarthNow! Landsat Image Viewer

The EarthNow! Landsat Image Viewer displays imagery in near real-time as Landsat 7 and Landsat 8 orbit the Earth. Along with the near real-time video stream, EarthNow! also replays acquisition recordings from a list of previous Landsat overpasses. When Landsat 7 or Landsat 8 are out of viewing range of a ground station, the most recent overpass is displayed.

EarthExplorer

The EarthExplorer (EE) user interface is an online search, discovery, and ordering tool developed by the United States Geological Survey (USGS).  EE supports the searching of satellite, aircraft, and other remote sensing inventories through interactive and textual-based query capabilities. 

GloVis

The USGS Global Visualization Viewer (GloVis) is an online search and order tool for selected remote sensing data.
