the quality of data from the Landsat 8
satellite, with presentations detailing
the radiometric, geometric, and spatial
performance of the sensors aboard
Landsat 8, in addition to new data
quality features included with this
imagery. “Landsat information is truly
a national asset, providing an import-
ant and unique capability that benefits
Federal, state, and local governments;
global change science; academia, and
the private sector” according to USGS
EROS Director, Dr. Frank Kelly.
