Remote Sensing Classroom

We’ve created fun and engaging educational lessons that allow students to look at satellite imagery and perform the same analysis as our remote sensing scientists at EROS. Students of all ages can learn how remote sensing scientists use Landsat satellite data to track changes to the Earth’s surface over the years. We’ve also added a few games and puzzles so you can test your skills too.

EROS Media Gallery

At EROS we take pride in our images! Here you can find a vast collection of our favorites, whether you are looking for your home state, imagery for an event, or something purely artistic. Select a category to get started.

Geonarrative: Land Motion and Subsidence on the Virginia Coastal Plain

Along the coast of Virginia, the USGS and our partners are constantly monitoring our land and waters in new and innovative ways. In Virginia, scientists at the Virginia and West Virginia Water Sciences Center are drilling deep into the Earth to assess the impacts of groundwater use. By studying the impacts of groundwater use, scientists can determine associated risks, such as land subsidence.

2022 in Review

2022 was monumental for the program, including celebrating its 50-year anniversary, transitioning a fully operational Landsat 9 to the USGS team, and extending the Landsat 7 science mission. In addition to these major events, we have included an interactive map showcasing events Landsat satellites captured 2022 from around the world.

USGS Klamath River Basin Mapper

Explore an interactive map of USGS stream gages in the Klamath basin. These gages belong to a sediment network established to monitor suspended-sediment movement from Keno dam to the estuary. 

Interactive Map: Virginia and West Virginia PFAS Sampling Locations

This interactive map shares locations where per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) have been sampled by the Virginia and West Virginia Water Science Center in collaboration with partner agencies.

USGS 3D Geologic Model Inventory

This Webapp can be used to visualize and explore the inventory of published USGS 3D geological models.

Watershed Monitoring in Clear Lake Tributaries

Data viewer that allows users to see the streamflow and water quality monitoring sites at Clear Lake and its tributaries.  Data is from the USGS National Water Information System and California Department of Water Resources and Lake County databases. 

Earthshots

The surface of the Earth is always changing. Some changes like earthquakes, volcanoes, floods, and landslides happen quickly, and other changes, such as most erosional processes, happen slowly over time. It’s often hard to see these changes from ground level. Earthshots shows you how satellite data are used to track these changes over time.

National StreamStats Beta Application

The National StreamStats Beta Application includes a Fire-Hydrology tool to help users identify streams and streamgages affected by wildfires.   

USGS Coastal and Marine Science in St. Petersburg, Florida

This interactive geonarrative will take you on a guided tour to explore the science, capabilities, and history of the USGS St. Petersburg Coastal and Marine Science Center. 

Arctic Alaska Mapper

The Alaska Regional Office has developed an online viewer platform where the public can access interactive map layers to display select marine and terrestrial geospatial features in the Arctic Alaska boundary area as defined by the U.S. Arctic Research and Policy Act.
