The Landsat satellites have witnessed decades of change on the Earth’s surface. Algorithms in LandTrendr (Landsat-based Detection of Trends in Disturbance and Recovery) attempt to capture, label, and map that change for use in science, natural resource management, and education.

LandTrendr is maintained by Robert Kennedy in the Geography group in the College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences at Oregon State University, with recent contributions by David Miller, Jamie Perkins, Tara Larrue, Sam Pecoraro, and Bahareh Sanaie (Department of Earth and Environment, Boston University), and foundational contributions from Zhiqiang Yang and Justin Braaten in the Laboratory for Applications of Remote Sensing in Ecology located at Oregon State University and the USDA Forest Service’s Pacific Northwest Research Station.
