Virginia and Landsat

Fact Sheet 2021-3050



From the shores of Jamestown and spreading north, south, and west, the lands that became the State of Virginia were some of the first in North America top experience rapid landscape change from European settlement. Imagery and data from the USGS Landsat series of satellites offer an unparalleled resource for the study, understanding, and preservation of Virginia’s land and water resources. From monitoring the health of water bodies to managing invasive species to planning for a range of climate change impacts, the USGS National Land Imaging (NLI) Program’s stewardship and public delivery of Landsat data has benefitted Virginians in myriad ways.
