Summary
Abstract: Landsat multispectral scanner (MSS) data from the Landsat satellite series are available from the National Satellite Land Remote Sensing Data Archive located at the U.S. Geological Survey's EROS Center and are provided at no charge. Landsat MSS data also are collected by 16 foreign receiving stations (i.e., Landsat Ground Stations Working Group participants), nine of which provide inventory metadata to EROS. These foreign receiving stations include Australia, Brazil, Canada, Italy, Japan, Maspalomas, Pakistan, South Africa, and Sweden. Purchasers are subject to individual distribution site policy and pricing directives.
