Global Archive of Ortho-rectified Landsat Data

Abstract: Recognizing the need to provide high-resolution satellite data to the scientific community, NASA's Commercial Remote Sensing Program Office, has been working to assemble the first wall-to-wall global coverage of ortho-rectified Landsat Thematic Mapper and Multi Spectral Scanner data to support scientific studies. In August of 1998, NASA contracted with MDA (then EarthSat) to produce positionally ... View entire text
