SpatialNews Press Release

View and download Australia from space

    You can now view and download Australia from space free of charge thanks to a picture mosaic of 369 Landsat satellite images available on our website.

    Viewing the mosaic online allows you to zoom and pan around your own area of interest. In addition, you can also download the same image to use as a picture or import it into a GIS system as a georeferenced backdrop.

    The spatial resolution of the mosaic is 300 metres, meaning it is more suitable for broadscale studies. The image is also available in smaller jpeg files (less detail) that are quicker to download. Note that ACRES standard Landsat products are provided with much greater spatial and spectral detail.

    The Landsat 7 Picture Mosaic of Australia was produced by the Australian Greenhouse Office (AGO) as part of their National Carbon Accounting System. The mosaic is comprised of 369 individual Landsat satellite scenes acquired between July 1999 and September 2000.

    More information about viewing and downloading the mosaic Here.
