Landsat: Seeing in a Different Light

Children Using Landsat ExhibitLandsat: Seeing in a Different Light engages its audience through asking them to select different locations around the world, and then gives the user a scenario where Landsat data is used to solve problems. Exhibit images illustrate that Landsat sees like the audience, while showing that Landsat sees more too. Landsat records thermal, shortwave, and near infrared light that people can’t see. Through comparing images made with visible light to images that include infrared light, the audience is able to understand how these different types of images are useful in different situations that have a real impact on society.

From June through August Landsat: Seeing in a Different Light will is in Vincennes, Indiana at the Knox library. In September, it will travel to the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science in time for the Association of Science and Technology Centers (ASTC) annual conference.  The exhibit will then be available to other institutions to host.
