Landsat MSS ESA Archive

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.
