Abstract: The USGS National Land Imaging (NLI) Program is currently planning for the next generation of Landsat satellites. These satellites will continue the multi-decadal continuous collection of moderate-resolution, multispectral, remotely-sensed imagery through the Landsat program. Landsat satellite imagery has been available at no cost to the public since 2008, which has resulted in the distribution of millions of scenes each subsequent year, as well tens of thousands of Landsat users registering with USGS to access the data. In order to continue to provide high quality imagery that meets the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: PO 00000 Frm 00052 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 needs of users, NLI is collecting current and future user requirements for sensor and satellite attributes. These attributes include spatial resolution, spectral bands, frequency of acquisition, and many others. NLI will use the information from this collection to understand if they are currently meeting the needs of their user community and to help determine the features of future Landsat satellites. Questions will be asked to determine user characteristics, current uses of imagery, preferred attributes of Landsat imagery, and benefits of Landsat imagery. Previous surveys were provided to all U.S. Landsat imagery users who were registered with USGS and a large sample of international Landsat users were also invited. However, many changes have occurred, and many Landsat users are not registered with USGS, but instead access Landsat imagery through a variety of cloud servers. The current and future user requirements for sensor and satellite attributes information from this user group has not been collected and is essential for future satellite decisionmaking within the NLI program. All Landsat users who participate during Earth observation capacity-building workshops will be invited to take part in the survey. To protect the confidentiality and privacy of survey respondents, the data from the survey will not be associated with any respondent’s email address at any time and will only be analyzed and reported in aggregate. All files containing PII will be passwordprotected, housed on secure USGS servers, and only accessible to the research team. The data from the survey will be aggregated and statistically analyzed and the results will be published in publicly available USGS reports. Title of Collection: Current and Future Landsat User Requirements. OMB Control Number: 1028–0123. Form Number: None. Type of Review: Renewal of a previously approved collection. Respondents/Affected Public: General public. Total Estimated Number of Annual Respondents: 11,660. Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 11,660. Estimated Completion Time per Response: 20 minutes on average. We estimate that it will take 20 minutes per person to complete the full survey and 5 minutes per person to complete the non-response survey. Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 3,335. Respondent’s Obligation: Voluntary. E:\FR\FM\18NON1.SGM 18NON1 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 223 / Wednesday, November 18, 2020 / Notices Frequency of Collection: One time. Total Estimated Annual Nonhour Burden Cost: There are no ‘‘non-hour cost’’ burdens associated with this collection of information. An agency may not conduct, or sponsor and a person is not required to respond to a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number.
