U.S. Landsat Analysis Ready Data

September 5, 2018

U.S. Landsat Analysis Ready Data (ARD) are a revolutionary new U.S. Geological Survey science product that allows the Landsat archive to be more accessible and easier to analyze and reduces the amount of time users spend on data processing for monitoring and assessing landscape change. U.S. Landsat ARD are Level-2 products derived from Landsat Collections Level-1 precision and terrain-corrected scenes that are processed and arranged in spatially consistent tiles and dense temporal stacks for immediate use in monitoring and assessing landscape change.
