The Landsat GeoCover collection of global imagery was merged into mosaics by the Earth Satellite Company (now MDA Federal). The result was a series of tiled imagery that is easier to wield than individual scenes, especially since they cover larger areas than the originals. The great detail in these mosaic scenes, however, makes them large in storage size, so the Mr.Sid file format, which includes compression operations, was chosen for output. While GeoCover itself is available in three epochs of 1975, 1990 and 2000, only the later two epochs were made into mosaics. For further details, please check out the official Product Guides.
