  • Abstract
    The USGS Earth Resources Observation and Science (EROS) Center archive holds data collected by the Landsat suite of satellites, beginning with Landsat 1 in 1972. All Landsat data held in the USGS EROS archive are available for download at no charge.
  • Purpose
    The Landsat archive provides a rich collection of information about the Earth's land surface. Major characteristics of changes to the surface of the planet can be detected, measured, and analyzed using Landsat data. The information obtainable from the historical and current Landsat data play a key role in studying surface changes through time.
