Brockmann Consult: BEAM now supports Landsat 8

In June the USGS announced the availability of Landsat 8 data.

Today we are happy to announce the support of the new (meta)data format introduced with Landsat 8 by BEAM. This enables the user now to open and work with Landsat 4/5 ™, Landsat 7 (ETM+) and Landsat 8 (OLI/TIRS) in GeoTIFF format; while Landsat 5 ™ is also supported in FAST format. You can get the latest version (1.4) of the reader by means of the module manager found in VISAT’s help menu.
