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).
