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

Version 1
  • Abstract
    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.
