L8M Australia


The Landsat-8 Mosaic over Australia consists of more than 7,692,000 km2 of imagery which has been orthorectified, radiometrically colour balanced and pansharpened. The imagery used is primarily captured in the dry season in order to provide a uniform appearance.

Together it forms a seamless and virtually cloudfree mosaic, providing customers with a product fitting a variety of applications. Whether your requirments are for a background image with an accurate geolocation, or for working with a large area of interest for the purpose of geographic and strategic analysis, then L8M Australia will have you covered.

The mosaic can be purchased as an off-the-shelf product and is available per-state or countrywide to suit your specific requirements.

The states are divided into six areas as follows; QLD, WA, NT, TAS, NSW-ACT-VIC, SA.
