100 Millionth Scene Downloaded from the USGS Landsat Archive

Detailed Description

On March 9, 2020,  the 100 millionth Landsat scene was downloaded from the Landsat data archive at the USGS Earth Resources Observation and Science (EROS) Center in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

The 100 millionth download is this Landsat 8 scene that was acquired on May 24, 2017 of WRS-2 Path 73, Row 87.  The image, a natural-color composite of Landsat 8 Bands 4, 3, and 2, shows the southwest end of New Zealand’s North Island. The stunning forested areas contain Lake Taupo, the Tongariro and Whanganui National Parks, as well as the always-striking Mt. Taranaki and its perfectly formed volcanic peak within the Egmont National Park along the island’s west coast.
