The development of the laser recorder is briefly described. The recent availability of non-R&D model laser recorders has made it possible to utilize these devices in the Landsat image generation program. A laser recorder that generates a direct 9.5" format color Landsat image is reviewed. The advantages of this unit and its use in the Landsat data processing is discussed.
