Sensor: All sensors will be searched if nothing is selected in
this list. To restrict the search to specific
sensors, click on either ETM+, TM, or MSS. To remove or add another
selection, shift (or Apple) click.
For ETM+ and TM, this should always be set to WRS-2. When searching
MSS, this should be set to WRS-1 (but some of our MSS holdings are
in WRS-2). Searches in the "Path/Row Search" based on the metadata
and not on the spatial coordinates. If you wish to search by path/row
spatially, use Map Search instead.
See the USGS page for more information about the
Worldwide Reference System.

of the data, enter in the starting and ending dates you want to search.

dates to the same value. To search from a date to the present, only enter
in the starting date. To search from a date to the earliest date
available, only enter in the ending date. Dates can be in either of
the following formats:
mm) is the month number, (
dd) is the
day of the month and (
yyyy) is the year. Years can have either
two or four numbers.

added. The search is done by querying data that has been added since a
certain number of days, weeks, or months ago from the present date. Type in a
number and select the units (days/weeks/months).

by certain attributes, click on attributes found in either the
"Require" or "Exclude" lists. To remove or add additional attributes
