Library to download Landsat imagery from AWS or Google Earth Engine servers

Project Description


Utility to download Landsat imagery from AWS or Google Earth Engine servers.

It’s quite similar to landsat-util, but if you just need to download imagery and need the BQA band and metadata information, it can fit better for you.


pip install lc8_download


You can use lc8_download command line interface or use it as a Python library.

Command line interface

Usage: lc8_download [OPTIONS] <scene>


-b Bands to be downloaded. Use commas as delimiter. Example: ‘-b 2,3,4,BQA’
--all Download all bands and metadata
--path Directory where the files will be saved. Default: ~/landsat/
--metadata Download scene metadata file.
--help Show this message and exit.

For example:

lc8_download LC80030172015001LGN00 -b 2,3,4,BQA –metadata –path lc8/

Download the bands 2, 3, 4 and BQA of the scene LC80030172015001LGN00. Also download the metadata file and save all the files in the folder lc8.

Python Library

>>> from lc8_download import lc8
>>> scene = lc8.Downloader('LC80030172015001LGN00')
>>>[2, 3, 4, 'BQA'], 'lc8/', True)

It will download the bands 2, 3, 4 and BQA and the metadata of the scene LC80030172015001LGN00 and save all the files in the folder lc8.
