Land Remote Sensing Program
The year 1999 marked a new era in remote sensing for the USGS; the USGS assumed responsibility for the operation of the Nation's land remote sensing satellites and the development of future land-focused satellite missions. In coordination with its public and private sector partners, the USGS, through the LRS Program, is ensuring that alternative data sources and evolving technologies are evaluated and utilized to their maximum potential to meet our Nation's land remote sensing requirements.
