The Advanced Land Imager (ALI) onboard the Earth Observer-1 (EO-1) satellite is a technology demonstration that serves as a prototype for the Landsat Data Continuity Mission (LDCM).

The ALI observes the Earth in 10 spectral bands; nine spectral bands have a. Image processing technique for certain purpose that applied in satellite data mainly divided into: pre-processing, image enhancement and mozaicking.

These processes, of course, utilizing all bands of satellite imagery data. To predict the output of imagery before actual process is done, we sometimes need a preliminary result and it need a ‘tricky‘ procedure. The free and open policy of Landsat data in completely changed the way that Landsat data was analyzed and used, particularly for applications such as time series analysis.
