International Ground Station (IGS) Network

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 8 and Landsat 9 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 Landsat 8 and/or Landsat 9 via data downlink should visit the Benefits of Becoming an IC page for more information.
