Question:

Can Landsat MSS images be compared to Landsat TM, ETM+, and OLI images?

Answer:

Landsat data from all sensors can all be used together; however, since MSS data is processed with different pixel sizes (half of the resolution of TM, ETM+, and OLI), this needs to be considered when working with the different sensors in one application.
