July 11, 2013 - Texas Oil Field Expansion
Oil and natural gas production are the primary industries for Odessa (left) and Midland (right) in western Texas. The Landsat 5 and Landsat 8 images above show the expansion of the oil industry in this region over the past 29 years. The white dots (oil well locations) increase noticeably between these two images.
Additional information about these Landsat images can be found in the Image of the Week gallery.
