The Landsat Archive

The chart below displays the number of scenes visible to all users on EarthExplorer as of November 30, 2014.

Active Landsat 8 and Landsat 7 acquisitions constantly increase the number of available scenes in the USGS archives; the Landsat Global Archive Consolidation (LGAC) effort has allowed more historical Landsat 1-5 MSS and TM scenes to become visible and available to all users.
