I seem to have an issue with not being able to download geotiff Landsat 8 data from te USGS site. After i find the image i would like to download and proceed to download the Level 1 geotiff option is disabled and I am only allowed to download the LandsatLook jpeg images.

I downloaded data from this site before but perhaps I am overlooking something.

I tried both http://glovis.usgs.gov/ and http://earthexplorer.usgs.gov/

    Oh no! That's not good. Not good at all. Thanks for clearing it up. Can the data be downloaded from alternate locations? Feb 11, 2014 at 2:20
