Landsat: Launching into a New Year

This year was huge for the Landsat Program. Here are three major Landsat events from 2021. Use the map to explore the stories we've shared with you this year.

LandsatLook

Landsatlook visualization client enables users rapid online viewing and create dynamic custom mosaics from scenes within the Landsat archive for an area of interest. Allows users to customize their mosaic using three band combinations, select spectral indices and quality assessment band filtering.  

Land Remote Sensing Satellites Online Compendium

The Land Remote Sensing Satellites Online Compendium contains details about past, present and future Earth observing satellites and the sensors they carry.  This resource has been developed and is managed by the Requirements, Capabilities and Analysis for Earth Observation (RCA-EO) team at the USGS Earth Resources Observation and Science (EROS) Center in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

Earth Observation Requirements Evaluation System (EORES)

The Earth Observation Requirements Evaluation System (EORES) provides long-term capability to collect, maintain, and analyze Earth observaton requirements and capabilities using relational databases, user interfaces, and analysis tools.

Land Product Characterization System

The Land Product Characterization System facilitates the application of multi-satellite and in-situ data for characterization and validation of satellite-derived land-related products.

Fire Danger Forecast Viewer

The Viewer Application provides a dynamic platform for multi-temporal data visualization of the Fire Danger Forecast data suite and supports user defined data subsetting and downloads.

ESPA On-Demand Interface

The USGS Earth Resources Observation and Science (EROS) Center Science Processing Architecture (ESPA) On-Demand Interface is used to request processing and services for Landsat Science Products and some MODIS archives. 

EarthNow! Landsat Image Viewer

The EarthNow! Landsat Image Viewer displays imagery in near real-time as Landsat 7 and Landsat 8 orbit the Earth. Along with the near real-time video stream, EarthNow! also replays acquisition recordings from a list of previous Landsat overpasses. When Landsat 7 or Landsat 8 are out of viewing range of a ground station, the most recent overpass is displayed.

GloVis

The USGS Global Visualization Viewer (GloVis) is an online search and order tool for selected remote sensing data.  

Find and Access Remotely Sensed Data

This link takes you to the USGS Earth Resources Observation and Science (EROS) Center remotely sensed land data archive, which contains millions of satellite images, as well as aerial photos, digitized maps, elevation and land cover products, and much more. Most are easily downloadable via the internet.

Hazards Data Distribution System (HDDS) Explorer

The Hazards Data Distribution System (HDDSExplorer) is an event-based interface that provides a single point-of-entry for access to remotely sensed imagery and other geospatial datasets as they become available during a response.

The National Map Viewer, A Portal for Geospatial Data

With the National Map viewer, you have access to geospatial data and tools, web mapping services, and application services for orthoimagery, elevation, and land cover data.
