getlandsat: Get Landsat 8 data from AWS public data sets

getlandsat provides access to Landsat https://landsat.usgs.gov 8 metadata and images hosted on AWS S3 at https://registry.opendata.aws/landsat-8/. The package only fetches data. It does not attempt to aid users in downstream usage, but some additional functionality may be added.

Potential users are probably anyone from scientists asking questions about biodiversity or land use change, to software developers creating tools for users to vizualize their data.

Caching

When requesting an image, we first check if you already have that image. If you do, we return the path to the file. If not, we get the image, and return the file path.

lsat_image(x = "LC80101172015002LGN00_B5.TIF")
