The Landsat Data Continuity Mission (LDCM) is set for launch in early February 2013. The state-of-the-art imaging satellite — to be known as Landsat 8 once it successfully achieves orbit— will build on the 40-year record of Earth observations by the Landsat satellite series and greatly expand the program’s capabilities to impartially record changes on the surface of the Earth. 

Conference organizers at the U.S. Geological Survey Earth Resources Observation and Science Center (USGS-EROS) anticipate nearly 140 participants in the meeting from 25 countries and 49 separate organizations.
