Landsat Imagery

Landsat is comprised of several series of satellites used to monitor the earth's land surface at approximately 30 meter resolution. These images provide a unique resource for people who work in agriculture, geology, forestry, regional planning, education, mapping, and global change research. McGill University Library has a small archive of Landsat imagery that covers specific regions within Canada, Latin America and the Caribbean. Some sets of imagery are individual shots, whereas others are time series.

Please note: each image in our archive is in its' raw format, thus requiring the user to have expertise in remote sensing techniques.

Alternatively, for easier-to-use world wide Landsat imagery, please consult USGS Earth Explorer (be sure to sign up for a free account to download data).
