These satellite images in Saskatchewan, Canada show progress on the construction of the Northgate Hub between September 10, 2013 (Landsat 8, NASA/USGS), and August 28, 2014 (Planet Labs).
We’re thrilled that all new Landsat 8 data is now available on Amazon Web Services. AWS’ streamlined access lets us process more images quicker and helps us deliver fresh insights about our changing planet to customers like Geoplex, Woolpert and Wilbur-Ellis. It’s now much easier for our team to search the Landsat archive and acquire images that help us build seamless, geospatially accurate mosaics.
It has been exciting to contribute to this effort by providing the processing resources and scripts to populate this new public data resource.
We’re ready to see new, meaningful applications of Landsat’s unique data set. Collaborators are welcome to contribute to the data ingest code at https://github.com/landsat-pds/landsat_ingestor.
