Landsat 8 Imagery

The top map has an overlay of Landsat 8 imagery from April 13, 2016, which was downloaded from the Landsat Look viewer. It used the percent clip enhancement that eliminates the lightest and darkest areas and modifies the colors. Landsat is intended for medium scale use on a regional basis. Using successive images of the same area we can see changes in vegetation over time. It is not good for large scale work. The second map shows the same area, at the same scale with the ESRI true color base map.
