Product description 

The Landsat-8 Workbench gives easy access to Landsat-8 imagery. Within the subscription period all new acquired Landsat imagery is automatically being uploaded to the workbench for immediate use. No search for data, no downloads needed.

Of course, you can upload any data of your own to the workbench as well. For any Landsat-8 data you can use L8GENESIS yourself to trigger the extraction of the desired indices. The fully automated software toolkit processes Landsat-8 OLI and TIRS data for you and extracts information without the need for further software.

It allows automated batch processing of any number of compressed Landsat-8 .tar.gz files, it decompresses them, stacks individual bands into data-cubes, performs radiance, reflectance and temperature calibration, applies image transformations, masks and quality assessments. Just copy the Landsat-8 scenes into the L8GENESIS input folder on your desktop and wait for your results in the output folder.

Choose between the L8GENESIS Foundation, providing the most used Landsat-8 analytics with a one click solution, L8GENESIS Standard providing more than 50 standard indices in addition, to assess different types of phenomenology and L8GENESIS Advanced making highly complex analytics available for detailed insight.

Recommended use 

If just being provided with the Landsat imagery is not enough for you and you would like to explore much more of the information, that’s hidden behind it, the Landsat-8 Workbench is ideal for you.
Without the hassle of data search and download, the latest imagery of Landsat-8 is automatically being uploaded to your Workbench and if you choose L8GENESIS, you can already find the data ready to use for your further analysis with each scene.

Choose between the basic package, L8GENESIS Foundation, which provides you with handy and already calibrated data for safe and quick analytics or the Standard or Advanced indices to get an immediate insight into different phenomenologies of the site in addition.
