Minnesota and Landsat

Fact Sheet 2020-3059



Landsat land-imaging satellites underpin public and private sector decisions in the Minnesota and across the Nation for effective adaptation to changing landscapes. Those decisions often lead to enhanced agricultural productivity, smart urban development, and sustainable forest management. Landsat also enables more accurate inland lake water-quality monitoring, increased aster resilience and risk assessment, effective water use, more-informed climate research, and other applications.
