Data & Imagery

  • GIS Geography
    A list of 15 sources for free satellite imagery.
  • Washita '92 Project
    Washita '92 was a cooperative experiment between NASA, USDA, several other government agencies and universities to test the usefulness of remotely sensed data in hydrologic modeling. The primary goal during the experiment was to collect a time series of spatially distributed hydrologic data, focusing on soil moisture and evaporative fluxes, using both conventional and remotely sensed methods.
  • Alaska Synthetic Aperture Radar Facility - UAF
    Alaska SAR Facility's (ASF's) primary mission is to acquire, process, archive, and distribute satellite Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data for the U.S. government and research communities.
  • Global Change Master Directory - NASA
    A comprehensive directory about Earth science and global change data and the systems that collect the data.
    The Geostationery Satellite Server provides meteorological satellite data in near-real time.
  • Langley Atmospheric Sciences DAAC - NASA
    The Langley Atmospheric Sciences DAAC is responsible for the processing, archival and distribution of NASA Earth science data in the areas of radiation budget, clouds, aerosols, and tropospheric chemistry.
    The Operational Significant Event Imagery Server provides high-resolution, detailed imagery of significant natural or anthropogenic environmental events.
  • SSEOP: Earth from Space - NASA
    The Space Shuttle Earth Observations Photography (SSEOP) database has over 250,000 images available for browsing and downloading.
