Landsat Images of Meteor Crater

The Landsat Program has provided over 36 years of calibrated high spatial resolution data of the Earth's surface to a broad and varied user community, including agribusiness, global change researchers, academia, state and local governments, commercial users, military, and the international community. Landsat images provide information meeting the broad and diverse needs of business, science, education, government, and national security.

The mission of the Landsat Program is to provide repetitive acquisition of high resolution multispectral data of the Earth's surface on a global basis. Landsat represents the only source of global, calibrated, high spatial resolution measurements of the Earth's surface that can be compared to previous data records. The data from the Landsat spacecraft constitute the longest record of the Earth's continental surfaces as seen from space. It is a record unmatched in quality, detail, coverage, and value.

The data presented here are Landsat 5 TM and Landsat 7 ETM+. Here is a brief comparison of the two datasets:

Band Spectral Bandwidth (nm) Resolution (m) Dataset Suffix
TM ETM+ TM ETM+ TM ETM+
1 450-520 450-515 30 30 _B10 _B10
2 520-600 525-605 30 30 _B20 _B20
3 630-690 630-690 30 30 _B30 _B30
4 760-900 750-900 30 30 _B40 _B40
5 1550-1750 1550-1750 30 30 _B50 _B50
6 10400-12500 10400-12500 120 60 _B60 _B61 & _B62
7 2080-2350 2080-2350 30 30 _B70 _B70
8 NA 520-900 NA 15 NA _B80

The images are georeferenced to the UTM map projection using the WGS84 datum. They are provided in GeoTIFF format and are compatible with both Photoshop and ArcGIS.
