Image Services Providing Access to Scientific Data at NOAA/NCEI
Track: Imagery and 3D Mapping
Authors: Jesse Varner, John Cartwright
NOAA's National Centers for Environmental Information stewards scientific datasets that are now readily accessible in web applications and desktop GIS through ArcGIS image services built on mosaic datasets. These datasets include near-shore hydrographic surveys, deep-water multibeam bathymetry, bathy/topo DEMs, geomagnetic models, and satellite-derived nighttime lights imagery. Time-enabled data can be animated with a time slider, and various visualizations are available using raster functions.
