The new filename is as follows:


L = Landsat
X = SENSOR (C=OLI/TIRS combined, O=OLI only, T= TIRS only, E=ETM+, T=TM, M=MSS)
SS = Satellite (07=Landsat7, 08=Landsat 8)
LLLL = Processing Correction Level (L1TP, L1GT, L1GS)
PPP = WRS path
RRR = WRS row
YYYYMMDD = Acquisition date
yyyymmdd = Processing date
CC = Collection number (e.g. 01, 02)
TX = Collection Category (RT=Real Time, T1=Tier 1, T2=Tier 2)
B = Spectral Band number (e.g. B1, B2, B3, etc.)
