NESDIS collects vast amounts of data from satellites to support NOAA's mission to understand and predict changes in climate, weather, oceans, and coasts, and then share that knowledge and information with others. Applications that utilize Geographic Information Systems (GIS) such as The World in Real-Time, Western Hemisphere, and Global Archive below present data as imagery on models of the earth. Zoom to increase the resolution of the imagery, pan to visit specific places, and click through the menus for further information.
Scroll back and forth through time using the image sequences found in Visible and Infrared Imagery, Colorized Infrared and Water Vapor Imagery. These simple interfaces allow a focused view of weather development over the continental United States.
