Esri, the global leader in mapping and geolocation software, announces the launch of Landsat Explorer, a revolutionary online application that simplifies access and analysis of multispectral imagery generated by Landsat satellite missions like never before. Remote sensing and Earth observation imagery play a critical role in helping organizations at local, regional and national levels make informed decisions about natural resources, man-made landscapes and the environment. Esri's new ArcGIS Living Atlas of the World app provides unprecedented ease of use and access to multispectral imagery Landsat Level 2Thus enabling organizations to make clear decisions about natural resources and the environment. Thanks to their deep time record, multispectral images from Landsat satellite missions support a wide range of ground observation applications.

Multispectral Landsat imagery is a critical tool for organizations that need to track and document land use and changes associated with climate change, urbanization, drought, wildfires, deforestation and other natural processes and “human activities,” says Sean Breyer, ArcGIS program manager. Living Atlas of the World, ISRI. These images are based on archives dating back more than 40 years, representing one of the most important sources for understanding Earth changes from a temporal point of view. GIS not only allows data to be accessed and shared like Landsat, but also allows users to extract and disseminate value-added insights.

The new application allows discovery and exploration of Landsat images which is very intuitive and will be particularly useful for organizations working with remote sensing and Earth observation imagery. Landsat, jointly managed by the USGS and NASA, is the longest space-based Earth observation program in history. The Landsat program officially began in 1972 with the launch of Landsat 1, and with Landsat 4 in 1982, the program began to ensure data continuity from one mission to the next. This continuity of data is essential for reliable monitoring and analysis of Earth's processes and their changes over time.

  • Visual exploration of a dynamic global mosaic of the best Landsat views available

  • Real-time multispectral band combinations and indices for visualization and analysis

  • Interactive search for scene function based on location, sensor, time or cloud cover

  • Visual change over time using scrolling and animation modes

  • Spectral analysis of plants, water, land surface temperature and more.
