The remote sensing data acquisition turorial is provided by Peter Price for your use in the classroom. The limitations are that you cannot charge for the materials, must give proper credit for the source and provide feedback if any errors are encountered. Please contact David Webb, firstname.lastname@example.org for the exercise files.

The Landsat Program is a series of Earth-observing satellite missions jointly managed by NASA and the U.S. Geological Survey. Since 1972, Landsat satellites have collected information about Earth from space. This science, known as remote sensing, has matured with the Landsat Program.
Landsat satellites have taken specialized digital photographs of Earth’s continents and surrounding coastal regions for over three decades, enabling people to study many aspects of our planet and to evaluate the dynamic changes caused by both natural processes and human practices.
