It started with the first Landsat satellite’s launch in 1972 and is continuing with Landsat 8, recently launched. Since June 2009, the entire Landsat image archive is available at no charge online (see website Earth Explorer from the U.S. Geological Survey). Landsat 7 Landsat 7 was launched in 1999 and is equipped with a multi-spectral sensor known as the Enhanced Thematic Mapper Plus or ETM+. The Enhanced Thematic Mapper Plus (ETM+), imitates the competencies of the highly successful Thematic Mapper instruments of earlier Landsats series. The ETM+ also have some additional features that make it a more resourceful and efficient instrument for global change studies, land cover monitoring and assessment, and large area …
