Humberto Yances,

Thank you for contacting us regarding Landsat imagery.
Landsat imagery held in the USGS archives can be searched on the following
pages (see below for detailed instructions on how to use these viewers):
·        *Glovis* *http://glovis.usgs.gov* <http://glovis.usgs.gov/>
·        *EarthExplorer*

Landsat imagery is downloadable at no cost.

Many scenes are ready for immediate download from the websites listed above;
requests can be placed for processing of scenes not downloadable, using
these same websites. Once requests are placed and imagery is processed, an
email notification is returned with the direct download location. Processing
generally takes 1-3 days.

Before downloading Landsat data, it is important to understand that a number
of files will be included, and how the individual band files work together
in image processing software to create a final RGB color image. Please see
these pages for more details:
·        Files provided with a Landsat scene -  *
·        Landsat spectral band designations - *
·        Which spectral band to use - *
·        The Landsat Processing Details page provides information on
parameters, correction levels and systems used during data processing - *

There are no restrictions on Landsat data downloaded from USGS EROS, and it
can be used or redistributed as desired. However, a statement of the data
source when citing, copying, or reprinting USGS Landsat data or images is
requested. Details can be found on the EROS Data Citation page - *

*GloVis* - *http://glovis.usgs.gov* <http://glovis.usgs.gov/>. Begin by
clicking anywhere on the map.  Along the left hand side of the viewer you
will be able to enter your location by path/row, latitude/longitude, or by
selecting the location on the map. If you would like to make the image
larger on your screen click on* Resolution* at the top of the screen and
change it to 240m. You can also browse through different image collections
by clicking *Collection* at the top of the screen and choosing from the list
(please note that aerial photography is now available through GloVis). Once
you find the image you would like to order/download, click the *Add* button
on bottom left of the screen and then *Download*.

*EarthExplorer* -
With this site you can view our Landsat archives in their entirety. Notice
the 3 tabs at the top of the screen - *Search Criteria, Data Sets,
Additional Criteria, *and* Results*.  Begin by entering your area of
interest either by address/place, path/row, or coordinates and enter a date
range. Next, click *Data Sets* to see a list of available products.  Click
the plus sign next to the product you are interested in and put a check mark
in the box next to the one you would like to search for.  Next, click
the *Additional
Search Criteria *tab if you would like to narrow your results.  Finally,
click* Results.  *Your results will be displayed on the left side of the
screen.  Notice the buttons next to each result - with these you can view a
footprint of the area on the map to the right, view a browse overlay on the
map, view the metadata, download the data, or exclude the data from your
search results.  Please note - you will need to register on Earth Explorer
before being able to download any data.

*Bulk Data Distribution -* *
This utility is very useful if you have a large number of images you
to download (you will need to have a list of entity id's ready).

Imagery not found in the USGS archive may have been collected by the USGS
International Cooperator (IC) ground stations. Each station is the primary
source of distributing data collected at their location. Details on the IC
network can be found at

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

We will forward this email to the LPDAAC group that works with ASTER and

A group of scientist and mappers in Colombia want to use some of the
satelital imagery at glovis.com, with the porpouse of scientiphic studies to
attend emergencies during floods disasters.

Please let me know if we can use ALTER, MODIS, Lansat and other sources for
this purpose.
