Landsat 8 carries two push-broom instruments: the Operational Land Imager (OLI), and the Thermal Infrared Sensor (TIRS) “Push-broom” refers to the one-way motion of the sensor, as opposed to a back-and-forth motion.
GEOMAC (Geospatial Multi-Agency Coordination) is an online wildfire mapping application originally designed for fire managers to access maps of current fire locations and perimeters in the United States.

The Landsat Program is a series of Earth-observing satellite missions jointly managed by NASA and the U.S. Geological Survey.
LandsatLook images are full-resolution .jpeg files that are included as options when downloading Landsat data from EarthExplorer, GloVis, or via the
Landsat data constitutes the longest record of the Earth’s continental surfaces as seen from space.
Landsat satellites have the optimal ground resolution and spectral bands to efficiently track land use and to document land change due to climate change, urbanization, drought, wildfire, biomass changes (carbon assessments), and a host of oth
In order to give fire managers near real-time information, wildfire perimeter data in GeoMAC is updated daily based upon input from incident intelligence sources, GPS data, and infrared (IR) imagery from
There are no restrictions on Landsat data downloaded from USGS EROS; it can be used or redistributed as desired.
