TerraLook - was Protected Area Archive

TerraLook provides access to satellite images for users that lack prior experience with remote sensing or Geographic Information System (GIS) technology. It does this by combining collections of images on user-defined themes with a set of simple visualization and analysis tools, allowing the user to explore the data and employ it for useful purposes. The images include recent high-resolution ASTER images, plus Landsat images from several historical periods going back to the early '70s. Such historical data supports change analysis.
