Landsat 4-5

The Landsat Multispectral Scanner (MSS) was carried on Landsats 1-5, and images consist of four spectral bands with 60 meter spatial resolution. The approximate scene size is 170 km north-south by 185 km east-west (106 mi by 115 mi).

The Landsat Thematic Mapper (TM) sensor was carried on Landsat 4 and Landsat 5, and images consist of six spectral bands with a spatial resolution of 30 meters for Bands 1-5 and 7, and one thermal band (Band 6). The approximate scene size is 170 km north-south by 183 km east-west (106 mi by 114 mi).

Landsat 7

The Landsat Enhanced Thematic Mapper Plus (ETM+) sensor is carried on Landsat 7, and images consist of seven spectral bands with a spatial resolution of 30 meters for Bands 1-5, and 7. The resolution for Band 8 (panchromatic) is 15 meters. All bands can collect one of two gain settings (low or high) for increased radiometric sensitivity and dynamic range, while Band 6 collects both low and high gain (Bands 61 and 62, respectively) for all scenes. The approximate scene size is 170 km north-south by 183 km east-west (106 mi by 114 mi).

Landsat 8

Landsat 8 Operational Land Imager (OLI) and Thermal Infrared Sensor (TIRS) images consist of nine spectral bands with a spatial resolution of 30 meters for Bands 1 to 7 and 9. The ultra blue Band 1 is useful for coastal and aerosol studies. Band 9 is useful for cirrus cloud detection. The resolution for Band 8 (panchromatic) is 15 meters. Thermal bands 10 and 11 are useful in providing more accurate surface temperatures and are collected at 100 meters. The approximate scene size is 185 km north-south by 180 km east-west.

MODIS

The MODerate-resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) Reflectance product MCD43A4 provides 500 meter reflectance data adjusted using a bidirectional reflectance distribution function (BRDF) to model the values as if they were taken from nadir view. The MCD43A4 product contains 16 days of data provided in a level-3 gridded data set in Sinusoidal projection. Both Terra and Aqua data are used in the generation of this product, providing the highest probability for quality assurance input data. It is designated with a shortname beginning with MCD, which is used to refer to ‘combined’ products, those comprised of data using both Terra and Aqua.

NAIP

The National Agriculture Imagery Program (NAIP) acquires aerial imagery during the agricultural growing seasons in the continental U.S. This “leaf-on” imagery and typically ranges from 60 centimeters to 100 centimeters in resolution and is available from the naip-analytic Amazon S3 bucket as 4-band (RGB + NIR) imagery in MRF format. NAIP data is delivered at the state level; every year, a number of states receive updates, with an overall update cycle of two or three years. The tiling format of NAIP imagery is based on a 3.75’ x 3.75’ quarter quadrangle with a 300 meter buffer on all four sides. NAIP imagery is formatted to the UTM coordinate system using NAD83. NAIP imagery may contain as much as 10% cloud cover per tile.
