What are LandsatLook images?


LandsatLook images are full resolution .jpeg files that are included as options when downloading Landsat data from EarthExplorer, GloVis, or the LandsatLook Viewer.

The following products are available, and are useful for image selection and visual interpretation:

  • LandsatLook "Natural Color" (3-band composite)
  • LandsatLook Thermal (1-band gray scale - not available for MSS scenes)
  • LandsatLook Images with Geographic Reference
  • Landsat Look "Quality" Image (Landsat 8 only)

The LandsatLook Images web page provides more information about LandsatLook files.



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.
