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 during the years from 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.

All scenes in the collection are included in this composite image.
