The Landsat program is the longest running series of acquisition imagery based satellites, originally launched in 1972 as the Earth Resources Technology Satellite, it was later renamed to Landsat. Recently a new Landsat satellite was launched (Landsat 8), to help obtain further valuable imagery to be used in geomatics, agriculture, forestry, research, education, and many other industries.
Landsat satellites provide us with images created from reflected and emitted energy in a variety of different wavelengths from the electromagnetic spectrum.
The electromagnetic spectrum (shown in the image to the right) contains includes all radiated energy from gamma rays to radio waves, however the human eye is sensitive and can only view the visible portion of the spectrum (reflected light portion, ranging from violet to red).
Unlike earlier versions, Landsats 7 and 8 provide images from the visible spectrum as well as near-infrared, mid-infrared, and thermal-infrared bands
Landsat data for Canadian regions are available for free download. Below you will find links to many Canadian LandSat images.
