Landsat Missions

Landsat in Action

You are here

The Landsat Program provides over 40 years of calibrated medium spatial resolution data in support of a range of applications in areas such as global change research, agriculture, forestry, geology, land cover mapping, resource management, and water and coastal studies - to name a few.

This page contains examples of regional and global Landsat data applications that can assist policy makers and land managers in making informative decisions about our environment and Earth's natural resources.

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.
