Landsat Missions

International Ground Station (IGS) Network

You are here

The map shows the locations of all active ground stations operated by our US and International Cooperator (IC) ground station network for the direct downlink and distribution of Landsat 7 (L7) and/or Landsat 8 (L8) data. The circles show the approximate area over which each station has the capability for direct reception of Landsat data.

In addition to the ground stations displayed on this page, many stations have received Landsat data in the past. The Historical International Ground Stations page displays these ground stations, and lists the approximate date ranges of the Landsat data collected.

Organizations interested in pursuing direct access to L7 or L8 via data downlink should visit the Benefits of Becoming an IC page for more information.

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.

Landsat Updates

The Landsat Update is an informal communication tool, prepared periodically and distributed electronically to USGS Landsat partners, to provide information about Landsat activities and related topics of interest.
