Landsat Bulk Metadata Service

The Landsat Bulk Metadata Service allows you to quickly retrieve scene-based metadata from the USGS Landsat inventories. Searches can be made for specific areas of interest by path/row or latitude/longitude, or by sensor, date range or cloud cover. You can also download all metadata files per sensor.
