Landsat Satellites Collection

Over the course of fifty years, eight Landsat satellites have observed the Earth's surface. This storymap collection allows users to view each satellite's heritage from Landsat 1 through Landsat 9 (Landsat 6 did not achieve orbit). See first light images, significant events, and unique science for each satellite.

Landsat Virtual Booth

Explore the basics of Landsat with this interactive storymap. Storymaps combine images, maps, videos, and weblinks to create an immersive learning experience for users.

Landsat 7 Overview

Landsat 7 launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California on April 15, 1999, on a Delta II rocket. The satellite carries the Enhanced Thematic Mapper Plus (ETM+) sensor. The ETM+ provided useful scientific information about the world’s landmasses for 23 years. Landsat 7 completed its science mission on April 6, 2022.

Landsat 5 Overview

Landsat 5 remains the only Earth-observing satellite with  a Guinness World Record , holding the title for "Longest Operating Earth Observation Satellite" after servicing our planet for nearly 29 years. Launched in 1984 and retired in 2013, Landsat 5 recorded many important events, including scientific discoveries, world events, and major disasters.

Watershed-based Midwest Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment Tool

Climate change has and is projected to continue to alter historic regimes of temperature, precipitation, and hydrology.

Global Vs30 Mosaic Map Viewer

Global Vs30 Mosaic Map Viewer based on topographic slope, with custom embedded maps for Vs30 (the time-averaged shear-wave velocity to 30 m depth) models and data.

Great Lakes Coastal Wetland Restoration Assessment Geonarrative

The Great Lakes Coastal Wetland Restoration Assessment (GLCWRA) uses principles of geodesign to identify, assess, and restore areas along the U.S. coast of the Great Lakes that have the most potential to restore coastal wetland habitat. This Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI) funded work supports land managers and restoration practitioners from site-specific to landscape scales.

Landsat 8 Overview

Landsat 8 was launched on an Atlas V rocket from Vandenberg Space Force Base, California on February 11, 2013. The satellite carries the Operational Land Imager (OLI) and the Thermal Infrared Sensor (TIRS) instruments.

How Do You Landsat Interactive

This interactive map contains examples of regional and global projects that utilize Landsat data to assist policymakers and land managers in making informed decisions about our environment and Earth’s natural resources.

U.S. Geological Survey COVID-19 Wastewater Surveillance

USGS, as part of the National Wastewater Surveillance System, designed and implemented high-frequency sampling of wastewater across six states throughout September 2021, to support tracking of potential increases in COVID-19 infections in communities. COVID-19 viral loads were determined for each sample with the goal of delivering results to the CDC within three days of sampling. 

Groundwater Resources of the New Jersey Coastal Plain

Online maps provide a view into the groundwater resources of 10 confined aquifers beneath Central and Southern New Jersey. These large-scale water-level surveys completed every 5 years provide a regional overview of groundwater conditions and helps water resource managers identify vulnerabilities to ensure their sustainability for current and future groundwater use.

 

Louisiana’s Coastwide Reference Monitoring System (CRMS)

The CRMS network includes 391 sites with standardized data collection techniques and fixed sampling schedules. Monitoring data including hydrologic, accretion, herbaceous marsh vegetation, forested swamp vegetation, soil properties, surface elevation, and land/water composition are available for download from the CRMS website.
