Satellite Image Combination

David Yanofsky discusses how he pieced together satellite images for a report on mainland Chinese trash washing up on Hong Kong shores:

The USGS has a website called EarthExplorer that lets you search through decades of satellite data. I limited my search to Landsat 8 data with less than 10% cloud cover.

(you can do this search on the command line with landsat-util too but i prefer the web interface. In the future I will probably use this online toolfrom Development Seed)

Hat tip to Nathan Yau.
