Webinar Recording Available: Advancing Science Capabilities with Data Harmonization & NASA’s Harmonized Landsat Sentinel-2 (HLS) Products
This webinar provides an introduction to HLS data, services, and tools and shows you how to find resources to work with the data; visualize, search for, and access the data through NASA Worldview and Earthdata Search; it also demonstrates how to use the Fire Information for Resource Management System (FIRMS) tool to visualize HLS data to monitor fires and floods.
