Observing our Earth from space with satellites such as Landsat brings new perspectives on our planet and new ways of solving problems for our communities. Landsat goes back to 1972. The treasure trove of Landsat data is now available at no cost, and there is no-cost software one can use to study landforms and cities, and to analyze change over time. With Landsat, people can see the effects of forest fire, assess the health of agricultural fields, see cities grow, and estimate the extent of future natural disasters such as volcanoes and floods. |
In this 4-hour workshop you will learn how Landsat images are made and the "power in the pixel." Learn to download and analyze your own Landsat scenes of almost anywhere on Earth's lands, and find out how to use Landsat images as a tool in your classroom.
