Landsat Science Team Discussion on Future Landsat Processing and Products: - .pdf (1.84 MB)
Presentation on MODIS Land products and their generation – this is to refresh the teams thinking
Identify Landsat products that will expand the science and applications of Landsat data and that are feasible for systematic derivation from the Landsat archive (Landsat 1-8), including climate data records and near real time applications products
Develop a consensus Landsat product breakout group discussion template and identify product breakout leads and note takers
Product breakouts – lower level product focus

Product breakouts - higher level product focus
Landsat product report backs
Discussion of Landsat product priorities and what is a feasible model for achieving product success (considering the constraints facing the USGS)
Wrap up discussion on Landsat products and processing Additional open discussion topics may include:
Landsat as a climate data record will require significant advances in calibration and processing. What does a Landsat climate data record look like and what needs to be done to get there (current issues, possible solutions)?
What should the next generation Landsat multi-spectral products look like and what are their general specifications (beyond L1T)? What level of user customization is appropriate?
What is a feasible model for achieving success (considering the real constraints facing the USGS)?
Discussion of the expected relationship between Landsat and Sentinal-2 science products
Develop plans to publish Landsat 8 evaluations and applications results (e.g., an RSE special issue)
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.
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.
