Service Description:

This Esri image service contains global Landsat imagery from 1975-2010 at 30 meter resolution. In this image service, vegetation appears in shades of red, urban areas are cyan blue, and soils vary from dark to light browns. Ice, snow, and clouds are white or light cyan. Coniferous trees will appear with a darker red than hardwoods. Generally, the brighter the red, the more vigorous the vegetation, and deep red hues indicate broad leaf and/or healthier vegetation while lighter reds signify grasslands or sparsely vegetated areas. This band combination gives results similar to traditional color infrared aerial photography by adding a near infrared (NIR) band and dropping the visible blue band. Vegetation in the NIR band is highly reflective due to chlorophyll content in the leaves, and a NIR composite vividly shows vegetation in various shades of red. Water appears very dark, due to the absorption of energy in the visible red and NIR bands.

Band Combination: 4 3 2 Landsat TM and ETM (Near infrared (4), Red (3), Green (2) into RGB)

Time Enabled: Yes. (Start Time Field: GLS_START_DATE; End Time Field: GLS_END_DATE)

Data Source: This image service was compiled from Global Land Survey (GLS) datasets: 1975, 1990, 2000, 2005 and 2010. GLS datasets are created by the United States Geological Survey (USGS) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) using Landsat images. These global minimal-cloud cover, orthorectified Landsat data products support global assessments of land-cover, land cover-change, and ecosystem dynamics such as disturbance and vegetation health.
