Question:

I have a list of Landsat Scene IDs; how can I determine the corresponding Landsat Product Identifier?

Answer:

The Landsat Scene ID will continue to be available as a visible and searchable metadata field on EarthExplorer (EE). After entering a search based on the Scene ID, you will see the Landsat Collection 1 Product Identifier in the search results, which can also be exported from EE in a variety of formats for metadata parsing.

We also encourage users to access the Bulk Metadata Service to download files that contain both the Collection 1 Product Identifier and the corresponding historical Scene ID.
