Landsat 7 Science Data Users Handbook

Landsat 7 Science Data Users Handbook

The Landsat 7 Data Users Handbook is a living document prepared by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Landsat Project Science Office at the Earth Resources Observation and Science (EROS) Center in Sioux Falls, SD, and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Landsat Project Science Office at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) in Greenbelt, Maryland.
The purpose of the handbook is to provide a basic understanding and associated reference material for the Landsat Observatory and its science data products. In doing so, this document does not include a detailed description of all technical details of the Landsat mission, but instead focuses on the information that the users need to gain an understanding of the data products.
