In June 2012 the U.S. together with other partner states and the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs organized an exhibition on the 40th anniversary of the Landsat programme at the Vienna International Centre.

Barbara J. Ryan from the Group on Earth Observations explains, that Landsat, which was originally launched by the U.S. Geological Survey, has been gathering images from the globe for forty years. And it's one of the fist continuous satellites that observes the landmasses of the earth and has been tracking, how the earth's landscape is changing.

One of the biggest successes of the programme is that the U.S. Government decided to open up the Landsat archive to the public. This decision to open up the archives to all the world's citizens has democratized earth observation, Barbara Ryan says.
