Description

The Global Land Survey (GLS) 1975 is a global collection of imagery from the Landsat Multispectral Scanner (MSS). Most scenes were acquired by Landsat 1-3 in 1972-1983. A few gaps in the Landsat 1-3 data have been filled with scenes acquired by Landsat 4-5 during the years 1982-1987. These data contain 4 spectral bands: Green, Red, an NIR band, and a SWIR band. In the typical False-color presentation, the images appear red because the NIR band, displayed as red, highlights vegetation.
