Worldview 2


Interactively browse and download full-resolution, global, near real-time satellite imagery from 200+ near real-time (NRT) data products from 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

View and download MODIS 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). MODIS Subsets and MODIS Near Real-Time (Orbit Swath) Images are also available.

Hazards and Disasters

LANCE 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 and sulfur dioxide, 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.

Web Fire Mapper

Interactively browse daily global fire locations from the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) from the Terra and Aqua satellites and Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) from the joint NASA/NOAA Suomi National Polar orbiting Partnership (SNPP) satellite through Web Fire Mapper.


Global Fire Maps

View MODIS and VIIRS fire locations in Web Fire Mapper and Worldview. View and download global 10-day MODIS fire maps which accumulates the locations of the fires detected by MODIS on board the Terra and Aqua satellites over a 10-day period, these represent the current fire activity around the world.
