* Landsat Archive Collection images may require processing before being available to download. Those scenes may be submitted for processing at no charge and downloaded at no charge following a processing delay. Scenes from the Landsat archive are available at no charge, processed to Standard Terrain Correction (Level 1T). While some scenes do not have the ground-control or elevation data necessary to perform L1T correction, the best level of correction is applied. More details at Landsat Product Information.

  • ·  Landsat 4-7 MSS, TM, and ETM+ Combined
  • For Landsat 4 and 5 MSS, the images are displayed as RGB composites, bands 4, 2, and 1, with a 2% linear stretch. For Landsat 1, 2, and 3 MSS, the RGB composites are created from bands 7, 5, and 4.
  • Images are resampled to a pixel size of 240 meters from the original nominal 80-meter data.
  • In the full resolution browse view, the MSS images may appear to be one-fourth the size of the Landsat 7 browse images because of the processing used to create the browse, but the actual MSS scene will cover approximately the same area (185 x 170 km).
  • The full-resolution browse images are displayed as JPEG compressed files with an average file size of ~50K. For the 1000-meter display mode, the browse images are GIFs with an average file size of ~35K.
  • The images are displayed as RGB composites, bands 5, 4, and 3, with 2% linear stretch applied.
  • Images are resampled to a pixel size of 240 meters from the original 28.5-meter data.
  • In the original resolution browse view, the Landsat 4 and 5 browse images may appear to be one-fourth the size of the Landsat 7 browse images because of the processing used to create the browse, but the actual TM scene will cover approximately the same area (183 x 170 km).
  • The full-resolution browse images are displayed as JPEG compressed files with an average file size of ~50K. For the 1000-meter display mode, the browse images are GIFs with an average file size of ~35K.
  • The original browse previews that are used to create the full-resolution browse images are uncorrected images in satellite orientation, and they can be viewed in a separate window.
  • These images are from Landsat ETM+, Landsat ETM+ SLC-off, Landsat TM, and Landsat 4 and 5 MSS – all the Landsat sensors that utilize World Reference Ssystem-2 (WRS-2). The scenes are merged together in chronological order to enable easy browsing through the various sensors. Scenes from any of the sensors can be searched, previewed, and ordered simultaneiously.
  • When an image is selected, it is outlined by a color that is unique to each sensor.
Dataset Color
Landsat ETM+ Blue
Landsat ETM+ SLC-off Green
Landsat TM Yellow
Landsat 4 – 5 MSS Red
  • Because of the large quantity of scenes for the combined datasets, loading the inventory will be very time consuming when using dialup internet or other slow connections.
  • For details on the individual Landsat sensors, please refer to the specific sensor information above.
  • When scenes are added to the combined sensor scene list, they will also be added to the scene list for that corresponding sensor. Conversely, adding scenes to the list for an individual sensor will be reflected in the combined sensor scene list. All other scene list features will be handled in the same way.
