For forty years, Landsat has protected and enhanced our quality of life by tracking changes on the Earth's surface over time, creating a vast global database of land images and data. Join us as our panel of experts discusses how Landsat helps us track wildfires, assess agricultural challenges, and mitigate water management issues. Providing hundreds of millions of dollars in estimated value to the U.S. economy per year, Landsat is an essential program to provide for our nation's future remote sensing needs.
