Question:

Can Landsat MSS images be compared to Landsat TM, ETM+, and OLI images?

Answer:

Landsat data from all sensors can all be used together; however, since MSS data is processed with different pixel sizes (half of the resolution of TM, ETM+, and OLI), this needs to be considered when working with the different sensors in one application.

About

Landsat represents the world's longest continuously acquired collection of space-based moderate-resolution land remote sensing data. Four decades of imagery provides a unique resource for those who work in agriculture, geology, forestry, regional planning, education, mapping, and global change research. Landsat images are also invaluable for emergency response and disaster relief.
