October 13, 2016 – Landsat Global Archive Consolidation
A new USGS Featured Story and a recently-published Remote Sensing of Environment article highlight the Landsat Global Archive Consolidation (LGAC) effort, which started in 2010 to consolidate historical Landsat data acquired by International Ground Stations around the globe into the USGS archives. While Landsat 7 and Landsat 8 satellites collect about 1,200 new scenes each day, over 3.9 million Landsat MSS, TM, and ETM+ scenes have been added to the USGS archive since the LGAC effort began.
