Earth-Now's review

    Published: 2013-11-06, by .

    Visualize the most recent global climate data from NASA's Earth Science satellites

    • Up-to-date data from actual NASA satellites
    • Many different data sets to choose from
    • Easy to navigate your way around the globe
    • None

    "Space: still geeky"

    Feed your inner geek with this NASA app that lets you check out visual displays of recent data sent from NASA's Earth Science satellites.

    Select from surface air temperature, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, ozone, water vapor, and gravity and sea level variations. The data takes just a second or two to load, then you're rewarded with a 3D display of Earth on the screen in vivid colors representing the data. Flick the globe to spin it, or pinch to zoom in.

    There's a bit of extra info explaining each of the data sets and helping you interpret what the various colors might mean. Other than that, this app is lean and mean, doing precisely what it says it does and doing it well.

    Jet Propulsion Laboratory's Earth-Now app is just perfect for those interested in climate change, plus anyone who wished they could have gone to Space Camp.

    NASA's Earth Now is an application that visualizes recent global climate data from Earth Science satellites, including surface air temperature, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, ozone, and water vapor as well as gravity and sea level variations. Data sets are visually described using "false color" maps. Color-coded legends are provided to indicate relative strength or weakness of an environmental condition. The resulting 3D model of the Earth may be rotated by a single finger stroke, and may also be zoomed in or out by pinching 2 fingers. It was developed by the Earth Science Communications and Visualization Technology Applications and Development Teams at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, with support from NASA Headquarters.
