During Spring 2015, significant changes to Landsat products will improve the consistency of Landsat 1-8 data records. These changes will enhance data usability.
The planned changes, potential impacts, and benefits are summarized below. Future Landsat Updates will be published to provide more details on each of these changes.
The name of the Landsat MSS cloud cover parameter was changed to match the TM, ETM+, and OLI/TIRS naming convention, which may affect existing automated processes. The additional parameters will enable other automated processes.
