Landsat STAC Tutorial

Detailed Description

The Spatio Temporal Asset Catalog (STAC) family of specifications standardizes the way geospatial metadata is structured to better enable data querying. The United States Geological Survey (USGS) utilizes STAC to better enable the search and discovery of Landsat data by providing STAC metadata for every Landsat data product accessible through the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud platform. All Landsat data products are located in an Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) bucket within the Oregon us-west-2 region. This tutorial serves as a basic introduction to STAC objects, specifications, and structure through examples of querying USGS Collection 2 Landsat data using the Landsat STAC API.

For more information about STAC and Landsat data see Landsat Commercial Cloud Data Access page.
