Abstract: Users of Landsat data have a choice of a set of four NASA-produced black-and-white images, a color composite, or a set of computer-compatible tapes (CCT's) for each scene. The CCT's offer at least two advantages not offered by the images. First, the data on the CCT's are primary data, whereas the images are a secondary product in which the process of reproduction inevitably results in degradation of the primary data. Second, the CCT's contain all the numerical data taken for each Landsat multispectral scanner (MSS) band recorded in a format suitable for automated data processing.
