I am looking for free multispectral satellite imagery for north Germany prior to 2015. Does anyone have a list of sources?

    If it’s open data that you seek then I think the place to ask is the Open Data Stack Exchange.

  • @IanTurton Seeing that there is a finite list of free multispectral imagery available and the subject matter meets the site standards, this appears to be a good fit for GIS SE.

  • Thinking about this some more I would recommend you look on earthengine.google.com just to explore and play with some RS datasets that may be relevant. That is typically my first step to explore a dataset even though I typically pull it down to python for the real analysis.

Landsat goes back to the 70s. You would want to look at Landsat 8, 7 and 5 for the time from the 2000s and 2010s.

You can download all Landsat imagery from USGS' EarthExplorer website.
