The ESE is an international earth science program aimed at proving the observations data. These high-resolution systems are expected to provide a quantum jump in the commercial applications of remote sensing, and hence the demand for professionals in the field. This image is a comparison of Landsat Thematic Mapper data on the right and. The scientific objective of the Landsat Program is to provide the baseline data required to map global land cover, land use and change on an annual basis over multi-decadal periods of time.

The Landsat Earth observation approach introduced in created a new way of monitoring land cover and land use globally. The Landsat 7 mission, successfully launched on Ap , continues those observations and demonstrates significant progress in precise numerical radiometry, spectral differentiation, and seasonally repetitive monitoring.   For most of the program's history, the USGS charged for Landsat imagery and ab images, on average, were downloaded annually. But in , the policy was changed and the image archive was.

  We propose a significant modernization of the publicly- and freely-available DEM data. Accurate surface elevation information is a critical component in scientific research and commercial and military applications. The current SRTM DEM product is the most intensely downloaded dataset in . The Uses of Satellite Imagery. scientific applications became a reality. While some satellites now look outward to tell us more about the distant universe, most focus on the world around us.

Scientific, military, and commercial applications of the LANDSAT Program: joint hearing before the Committee on Science, Space, and Technology and the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, U.S.

The Landsat Program This joint NASA/USGS program provides the longest continuous space-based record of Earth’s land in existence. Every day, Landsat satellites provide essential information to help land managers and policy makers make wise decisions about our resources and our environment.

As the origins of the Landsat program have been covered in detail elsewhere (4, 7, 8), this discussion will provide only a short summary of the main developments.

In particular, the reader is directed to the forthcoming Landsat legacy book, currently titled “Landsat’s Enduring.

The Landsat program is the longest military enterprise for acquisition of satellite imagery of Earth. On J the Earth Resources Technology Satellite was launched. This was eventually renamed to Landsat.

The most recent, Landsat 8, was launched on Febru The instruments on the Landsat satellites have acquired millions of. The Landsat legacy has been relatively consistent in mission objectives, with capabilities modified by incremental improvements in satellite, sensor, transmission, reception, data processing, and data distribution technologies.

Landsat currently provides an integral role in NASA's multi-scale global observing by: The Landsat Earth observation approach introduced in created a new way of monitoring land cover and land use globally.

Geological Survey (USGS) published a report on the initial progress of the Landsat 7 program. The report covered the first 18 months of Landsat 7 mission operations and provided an outline of sensor and data characteristics, as well as the mission goals of the Size: 2MB. Applications of Landsat Data.

Landsat data are used by government, commercial, indus-trial, civilian, military, and educational communities throughout the United States and worldwide.

The data support a wide range of applications in such areas as global change research, agri-culture, forestry, geology, resource management, geography. spect to advancement in applications of spatial (and to a lesser extent temporal) scaling theory, there has been perhaps no greater catalyst than remote sensing.

At the core of devel- opments in remote sensing has been the Landsat program. Launch of the Sputnik satellite in ushered in the Space Age. InJohn Glenn became the first.

The Landsat program has provided over 20 years of calibrated data to a broad user community including the agricultural community, global change researchers, state and local governments, commercial users, and the military.

The Landsat 6 satellite, which failed to reach orbit inwas intended to replace the existing Landsat satellites 4 and 5. Other types of remote sensing include stereographic pairs created from multiple air photos (often used to view features in 3-D and/or make topographic maps), radiometers and photometers that collect emitted radiation from infra-red photos, and air photo data obtained by satellites such as those found in the Landsat : Amanda Briney.

The Landsat Program came to fruition when Landsat-1, the first unmanned satellite specifically dedicated to multispectral remote sensing, was launched on J Landsat-1, a joint effort between NASA and the USGS, was the 1st in a series of 7 (to date) earth-observing satellites providing continuous coverage of most of the Earth's surface.

The Landsat program is the longest-running enterprise for acquisition of satellite imagery of Earth. On J the Earth Resources Technology Satellite was launched. This was eventually renamed to Landsat. The most recent, Landsat 8, was launched on Febru The instruments on the Landsat satellites have acquired millions of images.

Remote Sensing of Environment (RSE) serves the Earth observation community with the publication of results on the theory, science, applications, and technology of remote sensing studies.

Thoroughly interdisciplinary, RSE publishes on terrestrial, oceanic and atmospheric sensing. These sixteen Landsat applications alone produce savings of $ million to over $ million per year for Federal and State governments, NGO’s, and the private sector. Further annual savings, societal benefits, and commercial applications are described in the Landsat Advisory Group report.

PRINCIPLES OF REMOTE SENSING Shefali Aggarwal Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing Division Indian Institute of Remote Sensing, Dehra Dun Abstract: Remote sensing is a technique to observe the earth surface or the atmosphere from out of space using satellites (space borne) or from the air using aircrafts (airborne).2.

Technical Characteristics of the Core Program. The Landsat suite of satellite sensors has been the most successful remote sensing effort dedicated to Earth observations. 1 Born of civilian rather than military needs, the Landsat suite has provided 40 years of standardized, moderate-spatial-resolution, multispectral images of the world.
