  • Alabama Remote Sensing Archive Multispectral Imagery of Alabama from Landsat and Skylab

    https://cmr.earthdata.nasa.gov/search/concepts/C1214584460-SCIOPS.xml
    Description:

    Multispectral imagery of the state of Alabama is available from the Geological Survey of Alabama for the time period of 1972-1984. Imagery from the Landsat multispectral scanner (MSS) is available as prints or transparencies for all bands (with selected color composites avaliable) at an approximate scale of 1:1,000,000. MSS data is collected in four spectral bands ranging from 0.5 to 1.1 micrometer with a ground resolution of about 80m. Images available from Skylab 3 and 4 include 9 x 9 prints and transparencies at 1:750,000 (skylab 3) and 1:500,000 (skylab 4). These images were taken in 1973 and are along three tracks; northeast from New Orleans, LA to South Carolina, northeast from Pensacola, FL to Columbus, GA, and from Pearl River, Jackson MI to Pensacola, FL. The multispectral photographic facility onboard Skylab provided imagery in several wavelength bands ranging from 0.5 to 0.9 Micrometers. This camera system provided ground resolution of approximately 40 m in visible wavelengths to 75 m in the infrared. A variety of high and low altitude aircraft imagery of Alabama is also available from the Geological Survey of Alabama. Microfiche images of MSS/TM imagery of North America since 1986 (landsat browse imagery) are also available. Similar imagery for other locations and time periods is available from the Eros Data Center.

  • Landsat 1-5 dataset from Alaska Field Office's Dbase; USGS, Alaska

    https://cmr.earthdata.nasa.gov/search/concepts/C1214584458-SCIOPS.xml
    Description:

    This data set contains raw unregistered Landsat digital data covering most of Alaska. Data obtained from EROS Data Center in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Data acquired from 1980 and is ongoing. Some Landsat scenes date back to 1972. The data set currently has 585 records with a growth chart at 5-10 records per year. The amount of storage required varies by medium used or full scene or subscene selection; the file structure is sequential. Spatial referencing of data is by 57 x 59 meter grid cell size-MSS data. Data are available on 9-track, 800 bpi, 1600 bpi, 6250 bpi, unlabeled, unblocked, BCD, fixed record length tape. Subsets and custom formats are available. Limited documentation is available. The data is organized in 7 1/2 ' or 15 ' quads. Data is used for false color composites, land cover analysis, geologic analysis, hydrogeologic analysis, land use planning, basis for update of topographic maps, production of image maps.

  • Landsat 1-5 Multispectral Scanner (MSS) Collection 1 V1

    https://cmr.earthdata.nasa.gov/search/concepts/C1519978054-USGS_EROS.xml
    Description:

    Abstract: The Landsat Multispectral Scanner (MSS) was a sensor onboard Landsats 1 through 5 and acquired images of the Earth nearly continuously from July 1972 to October 1992, with an 18-day repeat cycle for Landsats 1 through 3 and a 16-day repeat cycle for Landsats 4 and 5. A limited amount of images have been acquired through January 2013. Landsat MSS image data consist of four spectral bands (band designations), although the specific band designations changed between Landsats 1-3 and Landsats 4-5. The resolution for all bands of 79 m, and approximate scene size is 170 km north-south by 185 km east-west (106 mi by 115 miles). Landsat Collection 1 provides a quality-controlled selection of radiometrically calibrated and consistently geolocated data; particular geodetic accuracy and error tolerances are specified to align pixels for time series analysis through the full Landsat record. More details about the Landsat Collections can be found at https://landsat.usgs.gov/landsat-collections.

  • Landsat Imagery from the University of Alaska Geophysical Institute, GeoData Center

    https://cmr.earthdata.nasa.gov/search/concepts/C1214592988-SCIOPS.xml
    Description:

    Landsat imagery at the University of Alaska's Geophysical Institute includes data covering Alaska and the surrounding areas since 1972. The collection is comprised primarily of Multispectral Scanner System (MSS) data, although data from the Return Beam Vidicon (RBV) and Thematic Mapper (TM) are also included. The MSS provides repetitive acquisition of high-resolution multispectral data of the earth's surface on a global basis. This sensor package images a 100 nautical mile (185 km) wide swath directly below the satellite as it passes over the Earth. Each scene, or frame of data, covers an area 100 by 100 n. miles in size. The nominal size of a pixel (picture element) for this sensor is 80 meters on a side. Four separate bands (wavelengths) are recorded by the MSS: Green 0.5-0.6 microns Red 0.6-0.7 microns Near IR1 0.7-0.8 microns Near IR2 0.8-1.1 microns Initially data were acquired directly from NASA, and were a subset of the holdings of the EROS Data Center in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Starting in 1978, additional images were acquired from the Canadian Centre for Remote Sensing. From 1982 to 1991, most of the coverage was acquired by the Geophysical Institute Quick Look Project, which operated recording equipment at the NOAA Gilmore Tracking Station near Fairbanks. Scenes in the database that were acquired by the Quick-Look program are so indicated. Much of this data IS NOT in the EROS Data Center's data base and is therefore UNIQUE to this collection. TM and RBV data included in the collection originally came from NASA, the EROS Data Center or EOSAT, depending on the time of acquisition. Their characteristics are described in the references listed for the collection.

  • LANDSAT MSS Data held by the National Institute for Space Research (INPE), Brazil

    https://cmr.earthdata.nasa.gov/search/concepts/C1214585822-SCIOPS.xml
    Description:

    INPE's only receiving station for Landsat MSS was located in Cuiaba, MT (geographic coordinates approx. 15.5S/56.0W). Data were acquired routinely over the entire range from 1973 until 1986, some time after TM data began being received. MSS data recordings were then reduced to Brazilian territory only. Also, many gaps exist, some of them several months long, related mostly to station downtimes caused by lightning. The MSS tapes recorded at Cuiaba were air shipped to the processing and distribution center in Cachoeira Paulista, SP, where they are kept. The holdings are estimated to be around 75,000 scenes (or 300,000 images, counting individually each of the four spectral bands), not all of them processed. The fifth band (thermal infrared) available on Landsat 3 is not counted for practical purposes. Very few were processed at INPE with disappointing results and it was soon dropped as a product. Demand for MSS products decreased sharply after TM products started being distributed. This determined the reduction and eventually the discontinuing of MSS recordings in 1987. The original processing system, based on 16-bit minicomputers, was dismantled in early 1991. An alternative ingestion system is being developed to allow limited processing of MSS data by the TM system, with a forecast to be ready in late 1998. Meanwhile, available products are limited to reproduction of existing photographic originals (about 150,000 black-and-white and color images). No digital products can be delivered, since no copies were kept from produced CCTs. Requests for products and for image search listings are handled directly by the processing center (listed at the Data Center entry), through contacts by mail, phone or fax. No online remote access is available to the moment, although plans exist to implement it, including the International Directory protocols. No firm date is speculated for that, but hopes are that it can be made before 1998. Information about costs, delivery time and available formats can be requested at the same address.

  • Landsat MSS ESA Archive

    https://cmr.earthdata.nasa.gov/search/concepts/C1965336926-ESA.xml
    Description:

    This dataset contains all the Landsat 1 to 5 Multi Spectral Scanner (MSS) Level 1 GEO and GTC products acquired from 1975 to 199 through the Kiruna, Maspalomas and Matera ESA stations (density maps available in Resources section). Two different product leves are available:• Geometrically and terrain corrected GTC Products (L1T): The most accurate level of processing as they incorporate Ground Control Points (GCPs) and a Digital Elevation Model (DEM) to provide systematic geometric and topographic accuracy; with geodetic accuracy dependent on the number, spatial distribution and accuracy of the GCPs over the scene extent, and the resolution of the DEM used.• Geometrically corrected GEO Product (L1G): Normally generated where there is a lack of GCPs, and are derived purely from data collected by the sensor and spacecraft e.g. ephemeris data.
