Get Started with Data

Background information about our remote sensing data is provided here, including Instrument Specifications, Collection Overview, and Research Themes. 

Review data products by collection—Community (i.e. ASTER GED), MEaSUREs (i.e. GFSAD), and Missions (i.e. MODIS).

Find information about technical specifications (i.e. launch date, swath dimensions, orbit repeat cycle and type, spectral range) of the satellite and airborne instruments—also known as sensors.

Explore workflow examples for discovering, learning about, and using remote sensing data for a variety of research themes.
