Analyzing NASA Earth Observation Data With ArcGIS Technology
Authors: Jennifer Wei, Long Pham, Peisheng Zhao, Wenli Yang
NASA satellite Earth Observation (EO) data are critical to a wide range of GIS research and applications. Yet the EO data are usually very complex in terms of science contents, formats, and spatiotemporal granularities, making them difficult to use for many GIS analysts. We’ll show in this presentation how to easily obtain and analyze NASA Goddard Earth Sciences Data and Information Services Center (GES DISC) EO data through ArcGIS’s data/image services and Web GIS capabilities.
