EOSDIS Worldview (Browse over 900 global, full-resolution satellite imagery layers and then download the underlying data)

Visually explore the past and the present of this dynamic planet from a satellite’s perspective. Select from an array of stories below to learn more about Worldview, the satellite imagery we provide and events occurring around the world. This app from NASA’s EOSDIS provides the capability to interactively browse over 900 global, full-resolution satellite imagery layers and then download the underlying data. Many of the imagery layers are updated daily and are available within three hours of observation – essentially showing the entire Earth as it looks “right now”. This supports time-critical application areas such as wildfire management, air quality measurements, and flood monitoring. Arctic and Antarctic views of many products are also available for a “full globe” perspective. Geostationary imagery layers are also now available. These are provided in ten minute increments for the last 30 days. These full disk hemispheric views allow for almost real-time viewing of changes occurring around most of the world. Browsing on tablet and smartphone devices is generally supported for mobile access to the imagery.

Worldview uses the Global Imagery Browse Services to rapidly retrieve its imagery for an interactive browsing experience. While Worldview uses OpenLayers as its mapping library, GIBS imagery can also be accessed from Google Earth, NASA World Wind, and several other clients. We encourage interested developers to build their own clients or integrate NASA imagery into their existing ones using these services.
