National Land Imaging Program

Fact Sheet 2020-3034



Changes taking place across the Earth’s land surface have the potential to affect people, economies, and the environment on a daily basis. Our Nation’s economic security and environmental vitality rely on continuous monitoring of the Earth’s continents, islands, and coastal regions to record, study, and understand land change at local, regional, and global scales. The U.S. Geological Survey’s National Land Imaging Program helps meet this need by ensuring the continuous availability of moderate-resolution satellite imagery and other remotely sensed and geospatial data.
