Short Name:

Landsat 4-5 Thematic Mapper Collection 1 V1

The USGS Earth Resources Observation and Science (EROS) archive holds data collected by Landsat 4 and 5. All Landsat data held in the USGS EROS archive are available for download at no charge.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. 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.
