      WHITE HOUSE. Office of the Press Secretary FACT SHEET LANDSAT REMOTE SENSING STRATEGY I. Introduction The Landsat program has provided over 20 years of calibrated data to a broad user community including the agricultural community, global change researchers, state and local governments, commercial users, and the military.   Additional information about the Landsat program, imagery, and applications are available at usgs () and nasa () websites. Since the launch of first Landsat in , both minor and major changes have been made to the sensor design and the characteristics of eo data collected by subsequent Landsat missions.

GovTech is a division of ic.   This book will not tell you much about state government but it can tell you about a state’s political culture. While much of the book provides biographical information on national politicians, the overviews of the states and biographies of Governors are excellent reading.

      The Landsat 4, 5, and 7 Worldwide Reference System-2 (WRS-2) is an extension of the global Landsat 1 through 3 WRS-1 and utilizes an orderly Path/Row system in a similar fashion. There are, however, major differences in repeat cycles, coverage, swathing patterns and Path/Row designators due to the large orbital differences of Landsats 4 and 5. Landsat imagery has a vast number of users and uses. The benefits of the information that Landsat data provide range from conserving water and protecting public health and safety to informing decisionmakers in fields like natural resource management and planning and development. Although.
