2014 NGAC Guidance

Landsat Advisory Group

The NGAC Landsat Advisory Group (LAG) will provide advice to the Federal Government, through the NGAC, on the requirements, objectives and actions of the Landsat Program as they apply to ongoing delivery of societal benefits for the Nation and the global Earth observation community. The LAG is requested to provide advice and recommendations on Landsat-related issues for consideration by the NGAC, including the following:

Review and update the 2012 LAG paper, β€œThe Value Proposition for Ten Landsat Applications.” The 2012 paper documented an estimated $178M to $235M in annual cost savings experienced by federal and state government agencies within ten categories of Landsat data use. Since the 2012 cost savings estimates were compiled by the LAG, the USGS has gathered additional information through a Landsat user survey, a preliminary collection of Landsat-user case studies, and a pilot project on remote sensing user requirements. The USGS will share this information with the LAG to assist in updating the examples used in the 2012 paper, refining the list of user applications within and beyond government agencies, and enhancing the Landsat value summary.
