Efficiently Subset and Transform Data

These images were created from data that were subsetted, mosaicked, reprojected, and reformatted using AppEEARS, Version 2.0. AppEEARS is a one-stop-shop for retrieving a wide variety of data such as Thermal Anomalies and Fire, Vegetation Indices, Surface Reflectance, and Land Surface Temperature.

AppEEARS 2.0 Now Available!

The Application for Extracting and Exploring Analysis Ready Samples (AppEEARS) is a simple way to access and customize time-series data for more than 100 NASA data products. AppEEARS lets you customize data and data layers, and interact with graphs and plots to explore trends prior to download.


NASA's data policy ensures that all NASA data are available fully, openly, and without restrictions. Here's what this means to you.


The Earth Observing System Data and Information System is a key core capability in NASA’s Earth Science Data Systems Program. It provides end-to-end capabilities for managing NASA’s Earth science data from various sources—satellites, aircraft, field measurements, and various other programs.
