Geographical Display of Landsat Acquisition Priorities

Detailed Description

This map is an example showing the geographic coverage of acquisition priorities for Landsat 8 and Landsat 9 on a typical day. Lower priority scenes are more likely to be rejected to meet the daily limit, while the highest priority scenes are only rejected for maneuvers or rare calibration events.

Visit the Landsat Acquisition page for more details about the satellites' acquisition plans.
