In 1972, Landsat began transmitting views of our planet back to Earth. The first Landsat and its five successors (two of them in operation now) have delivered millions of new images from a satellite orbiting 438 miles above the Earth. Landsat's orbit enables a new image to be recorded every sixteen days of any area on the Earth's surface. In October, 2008, the U.S. Geological Survey opened the Landsat archive to user access at no charge.

These Satellite View maps were created from mosaics of many Landsat images joined together. Colors were selected to better show variations in the landscape. Relief shading was added to enhance the terrain and make the landforms more apparent.

The maps are available in the following formats.
