Landsat Missions

Historical International Ground Stations

You are here

The map shows the locations of all historical ground stations operated by International Cooperators (IC).*

Historically, much of the data acquired internationally was retained solely in the archive of the IC that originally acquired the data. There was no requirement to provide a copy of the data to the USGS; so much of the international data was not duplicated in the USGS archive.

In an attempt to consolidate the Landsat historical record, the Landsat Global Archive Consolidation (LGAC) initiative was established. The goal is to consolidate the Landsat archives of all stations worldwide and make all Landsat scenes available to users.

*Note: Some stations shown are still active. Stations that have solely collected data as part of the USGS Landsat Ground Network (LGN) are not shown.

About

Landsat represents the world's longest continuously acquired collection of space-based moderate-resolution land remote sensing data. Four decades of imagery provides a unique resource for those who work in agriculture, geology, forestry, regional planning, education, mapping, and global change research. Landsat images are also invaluable for emergency response and disaster relief.
