What is Landsat?

The Landsat Program is a series of Earth-observing satellite missions jointly managed by NASA and the USGS. Landsat satellites have been consistently gathering data about our planet since 1972. They continue to improve and expand this unparalleled record of Earth’s changing landscapes for the benefit of all. The Landsat Data Continuity Mission (LDCM) will become the 8th satellite in  the Landsat series and is launching from Vandenberg Air Force Base, California on February 11th 2013.
