Landsat Global Land Survey 1975 Mosaic (LANDSAT/GLS1975)

The Global Land Survey (GLS) 1975 is a
global collection of imagery from the Landsat Multispectral
Scanner (MSS). Most scenes were acquired by Landsat 1-3
in 1972-1983. A few gaps in the Landsat 1-3 data
have been filled with scenes acquired by Landsat 4-5 during the
years 1982-1987. These data contain 4 spectral bands:
Green, Red, an NIR band, and a SWIR band. In the typical
False-color presentation, the images appear red because
the NIR band, displayed as red, highlights vegetation.
