Water Observations from Space (WOfS) is a web service displaying historical surface water observations derived from satellite imagery for all of Australia for the period 1987 to present. WOfS displays the detected surface water from the Australia-wide Landsat 5, Landsat 7 and Landsat 8 satellite imagery archive. The aim of WOfS is to better understand where water is usually present; where it is seldom observed; and where inundation of the surface has been occasionally observed by satellite.
