Remember: The ESPA User Guide contains helpful information when placing orders for Landsat Collection 2, MODIS, and VIIRS product processing and downloading of completed data.

ESPA System Reminders

  • Each Wednesday from 7 am to 1 pm CT, standard preventative maintenance activities may affect MODIS data access. During this time, any ESPA containing MODIS data will be paused, until the source data become available to allow successful processing.
  • Users are allowed to have 10,000 open units in processing at one time.

Current Offerings

Bulk Ordering

Bulk ordering allows a list of Landsat scenes to be submitted for additional processing beyond what is available through the standard Landsat Level-1 processing.

This is the primary mechanism to gain access to LSRD's provisional and prototype data products.

Bulk Ordering API

The API enables end-users to write their own clients to interact with all Bulk Ordering capabilities.

The Bulk Ordering API is implemented as a REST service using HTTP and JSON and is accessible from most programming languages.
