Landsat Data Acquisition Request

The Landsat Program acquires data according to the Landsat 8 and Landsat 9 Long Term Acquisition Plans (LTAPs). Visit the Landsat Acquisitions page for more information. 

Special requests are required to suggest acquisitions of data that do not fall within the candidate images acquired by the logic defined in the LTAPs, and are mainly used to acquire night, low sun elevation, ocean, and ascending day-lit data. Special requests are not required for most day-lit (descending) scenes within which any land exists.


Please complete and submit the form below no later than two weeks prior to the start date of your request (unless it is an emergency situation). Your submission will be considered, reviewed, and elevated for final approval. 

NOTE: There is no guarantee that the data will be collected. The probability of data acquisition will depend upon a variety of factors, including the number and priority of other scheduled acquisitions, as well as the cloud cover predictions. 

Contact Customer Services with any questions: custserv@usgs.gov.
