Land Use And Land Cover

Landsat 8 data products are processed to be consistent with the existing Landsat 1 to Landsat 7 Level-1 data products.
The Worldwide Reference System (WRS) is a global notation used in cataloging Landsat data. Landsat 8 and Landsat 7 follow the WRS-2, as did Landsat 5 and Landsat 4. Landsat 1, Landsat 2, and Landsat 3 followed WRS-1.
The following information can be found on the GeoMAC application:
Landsat has 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 other natural and human-c
Land use change is perhaps the most observable of all environmental changes.
The LDCM Long Term Acquisition Plan (LTAP-8) and the Landsat 7 Long Term Acquisition Plan (LTAP) direct the acquisitio
Landsat 8's Operational Land Imager (OLI) and Thermal Infrared Sensor (TIRS) sensors provide improved signal-to-noise (SNR) radiometric performance quantized over a 12-bit dynamic range.
The percentage of cloud cover is calculated when raw mission data from Landsat Thematic Mapper (TM) and Enhanced Thematic Mapper Plus (ETM+) are processed to Level-0R during ingest into the archive using the
The perimeters are updated in GeoMAC when the personnel on the fire create and make available a new perimeter.  Once the perimeter is made available, the perimeter is downloaded, quality checked and loaded into the database.
