Worldview 2


Interactively browse and download full-resolution, global satellite imagery from 800+ data products from NASA’s Land, Atmosphere Near real-time Capability for EOS (LANCE) and other NASA data providers. Showing the entire Earth as it looks "right now" - or at least as it has looked within the past few hours, Worldview supports time-critical application areas such as wildfire management, air quality measurements, and weather forecasting. Worldview is supported by the Global Imagery Browse Services (GIBS) - a set of standard services that delivers imagery in a highly responsive manner.

Rapid Response

NOTE: Rapid Response Subsets have been discontinued and replaced by Worldview Snapshots.
View and download Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) and Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) imagery. All imagery can be viewed through Worldview. To help users, the imagery have been organized into 10 application categories to assist users in monitoring and analyzing a variety of natural and man-made hazards and disasters (e.g. ash plumes and fires).

Hazards and Disasters image

Hazards and Disasters

LANCE Earth Observing System (EOS) data and imagery enable users to get a snap shot of the Earth in near-real time. This timely data is useful for a range of applications e.g. to detect fires, track smoke, ash and dust plumes; to monitor aerosols, carbon monoxide (CO) and sulfur dioxide (SO2), which in turn are useful for air quality assessments; and to determine the extent of sea ice, snow, and flooding which are useful to support shipping in the polar regions and to allow rapid assessment of areas worst affected by snow or flood water.
