Landsat 7 is the latest in a series of Earth-imaging spacecraft to continue the 26-year flow of global change information to the scientific community and commercial users worldwide. It is the latest mission in the Landsat series which is part of NASA's Mission to Planet Earth program. Data from Landsat is used for monitoring global deforestation, monitoring fire damage, estimating soil moisture and snow water equivalence, monitoring flood, storm, earthquake and volcanic eruption damage.
