Landsat Data Continuity Mission Update
Landsat simulation coverage area.

On January 10th NASA held a news briefing to discuss the upcoming launch of the Landsat Data Continuity Mission (LDCM) scheduled for February 11. This mission is a collaboration between NASA and the U.S. Geological Survey.
LDCM will continue the Landsat Program’s 40-year data record of monitoring Earth’s landscapes from space. LDCM will expand and improve on that record with observations that advance a wide range of Earth sciences and contribute to the management of agriculture, water and forest resources.
