Guide to Earth Explorer for Landsat 8

Guide to Earth Explorer for Landsat 8 | Teacher Tools and Tips | Scoop.it

The Landsat Data Continuity Mission is now Landsat 8, and that means images are now public (woohoo!). NASA handed control of the satellite to the USGS earlier this year (May 30, 2013), and calibrated imagery is available through the Earth Explorer. Unfortunately, the Earth Explorer interface is a bit of a pain, so I’ve put together a guide to make it easier.

Sharrock's insight:

Looks like a cool tool for mapping activities.

If you have been afraid to download remotely sensed images, this is a very-user friendly, step-by-step guide on how to download Landsat 8 data (and many other geospatial datasets)  using Earth Explorer from USGS.  


Tagsremote sensing, geospatial.

Chris Cividino's curator insight, November 8, 2013 12:09 AM

The Landsat program is an essential tool for geographers when they are studying GIS. Without this data, Google Earth and many of the other mapping programs we love so much would not be possible.

Map Your Favorite Scary Movies with "The Geography of Horror"

Map Your Favorite Scary Movies with "The Geography of Horror" | Teacher Tools and Tips | Scoop.it
Where's the scariest place on the planet? It could be the Han River in Seoul, where The Host snagged unsuspecting river goers. Or maybe it's boring old Georgia, where a man executed by electric chair came back as a zombie to punish his killers.
Sharrock's insight:

This could be a great math activity towards the end of October (Halloween). A number of questions from the charting of horror movie settings all over the world. This is also about data, so statistics classes might explore the questions that could be answered.
