Libra: The landsat imagery browser

A tool to browse, sort, and download more than 275 Terabytes of open Landsat imagery for free.

Global development organisations use open satellite imagery for everything from evaluating disaster response, to tracking deforestation, to planning for drought.

Libra is a project that was born when DevelopmentSeed - a creative data visualisation and mapping company, and LANDSAT - NASA's global record of the Earth’s surface, joined forces and created a tool that allows anyone to browse, sort, and download more than 275 Terabytes of open Landsat imagery for free.
