Daily NASA MODIS Satellite Imagery for Google Earth
The power of WMS (Web Mapping Service) is really showing with several new imagery layers coming out from NASA. Someone called 'OnEarthWMS' at the GEC just yesterday posted some really cool links showing the hi-resolution color satellite photos from the MODIS (Moderate-resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer) Terra and Aqua satellites. These network links show all the photos from the previous 24 hours updated daily, and show more detail as you zoom in:
Note: You should only turn on one of these layers at a time or they may interfere.
Implementing transparency on the blank spots in the MODIS satellite would allow the rest of the Earth to show through. He also shows an example of what this would look like with a Blue Marble underlayed with the MODIS data.
These links are definitely network links worth saving in your "My Places". These are powerful examples of how GE can be used to show large dataset updated frequently and more useful as you zoom in closer. Not only that, but this is yet another step towards near real-time satellite photography being made available for GE. This is the kind of work I would expect the new NASA/Google relationship to produce.
- NASA Mars Imagery
- New Blue Marble Imagery
- Global Clouds - updated every three hours
- Blue Marble Add-On for GE
