Landsat Collection 2 U.S. Analysis Ready Data

April 5, 2023

Landsat Collection 2 (C2) U.S. Analysis Ready Data (U.S. ARD) are bundles of tiled Landsat data that make the Landsat archive easier to analyze and reduce the amount of time users spend on data processing for time-series analysis. Landsat C2 was released in 2020 and includes improvements over Landsat Collection 1 data, including better geometric accuracy, which increases the number of available C2 U.S. ARD tiles. Landsat C2 U.S. ARD are processed to the highest scientific standards.

Landsat C2 U.S. ARD are available for the conterminous United States (1982–present), Alaska (1984–present), and Hawaii (1989–93 and 1999–present) using Landsat C2 Level-1 data processed into Albers Equal-Area Conic-projected Level-2 surface reflectance and surface temperature products.
