getLandsat_names obtains names of available Landsat products from the USGS Earth Explorer. They can optionally be used with the getLandsat_query function for querying a specific Landsat product instead of all.

getLandsat_names(username = NULL, password = NULL)

Arguments

username

character, a valid user name to the USGS EROS Registration System (ERS). If NULL (default), the session-wide login credentials are used (see login_USGS for details on registration).

password

character, the password to the specified user account. If NULL (default) and no seesion-wide password is defined, it is asked interactively ((see login_USGS for details on registration).

Value

A character vector

# NOT RUN {
## Load packages
library(getSpatialData)
library(sf)

## set aoi and time range for the query
set_aoi(aoi_data[[1]])
time_range <-  c("2017-08-01", "2017-08-30")

## Login to USGS ERS
# }# NOT RUN {
login_USGS("username")

## set archive directory
set_archive("/path/to/archive/")

## get available products and select one
product_names <- getLandsat_names()

## query for records for your AOI, time range and product
query <- getLandsat_query(time_range = time_range, name = product_names[7])

## preview a record
getLandsat_preview(query[5,])

#print available levels for a record
query[5,]$levels_available

## download record 5 with level "l1" (will direct to AWS automaticaly)
files <- getLandsat_data(records = query[5,], level = "l1", source = "auto")

## download record 5 with level "sr" (will be processed on demand by ESPA)
files <- getLandsat_data(records = query[5,], level = "sr", source = "auto")
# this can take very long, since the function will wait,
# until the processing by ESPA is done

## you can abort the function while it is waiting for ESPA and resume later:
files <- getLandsat_data(espa_order = "espa-XYZA@host.com-YOUR-ORDER-ID")
# the order IDs are displayed and send by mail, use them to resume the task
# }# NOT RUN {
