Using Landsat Image Services
The new Landsat image services will benefit anyone interested in visualizing and analyzing the world around them.
- Environmental organizations—Immediate access to image services that provide over 30 years of land-cover information to aid in detecting change and help with regulations and enforcement
- Forestry—Reports and monitors the changes in habitat for species and changes in a wide range of natural and man-made forests
- Higher education—Used as a tool to teach the science of remote sensing and access to the information content available in remotely sensed imagery beyond that in the visible spectrum
- K–12 education—Provides a fascinating component to social studies classes in enabling students to see how the earth has changed over their parents' lifetimes, as well as their own, and giving them a great perspective on the effect mankind has on nature
- Natural resources—Source for multispectral imagery used to investigate the possible existence of minerals or geologic features that aid in prospecting for new resources
- Nongovernmental organizations—Reviews the impact of change over the last
30 years on current projects, for example, deforestation and desertification in parts of Africa
