  • The primary goal of Landsat 7 is to refresh the global archive of satellite photos, providing up-to-date and cloud-free images.
  • Provide data continuity with Landsats 4 and 5Make data widely available for the cost of fulfilling a user request (called COFUR)
  • Although the Landsat Program is managed by NASA, data from Landsat 7 is collected and distributed by the USGS.
