Use the tools on this page to determine when the Landsat 7 and Landsat 8 satellites acquire data over your area of interest, and to view the paths that were acquired on any given day. Landsat satellites image the entire Earth every 16 days in an 8-day offset. Landsat 7 acquires data in descending (daytime) node, while Landsat 8 acquires data in both descending and occasional ascending (nighttime) node. Return to the Landsat Acquisition page.
View Landsat 7 or 8 paths scheduled for acquisition on any day. Select a satellite. Click on the date you want to view. The paths for that date appear in a list below and on the map.
Enter a Landsat path and row to display the nearest scene center latitude and longitude coordinates. Enter a latitude and longitude or click on the map to display Landsat scenes that cover the point. The results are summarized in a table along with the next calculated acquisition date for each satellite.
To correctly identify the ascending (nighttime) or descending (daytime) path and row, choose Ascending Node or Descending Node before doing the conversion.
Display Landsat acquisitions paths for any day and download the files that list the paths that were acquired. Select the satellite, date, and how many additional days (1-15) to view.
