What is the LandsatLook Viewer?


The LandsatLook Viewer is a prototype tool that was developed to allow rapid online viewing and access to the USGS Landsat image archives. This viewer allows you to:

  • Interactively explore the Landsat archive at up to full resolution directly from a common Web browser
  • Search for specific Landsat images based on area of interest, acquisition date, or cloud cover
  • Compare image features and view changes through time
  • Display configurable map information layers in combination with the Landsat imagery
  • Create a customized image display and export as a simple graphic file
  • View metadata and download the full-band source imagery



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.
