"An analysis of recent and historical satellite imagery collected over the past forty years was carried out for Lake Chad in West Africa, the Sundarbans along the India-Bangladesh border, Papua in Indonesia, the Paranaense Forest around Itaipú Dam and Iguazú Falls at the juncture of Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay, and the Atatürk Dam and the Harran Plain in southeastern Turkey to provide scientific evidence of environmental change taking place in these ecologically significant regions of the world"--P.  of cover.
Call Number: Evans Map Room DVD-ROM G 3741.A4 2004 .U5
Contains a set of imagery as well as a set of lines and/or polygons used to create compressed county mosaics of Coos, Carroll, and Grafton counties generated by the 2003 and 2004 National Agricultural Imagery Programs.
This database allows you to locate aerial photography from private companies, universities, states, NGOs, and federal sources. The catalog contains metadata that lets you see if coverage exists over an area of interest. The acquisition date, film type, sensor type, and scale are also provided along with the supplier contact information.
The Digital Coast was developed to meet the unique needs of the coastal management community. This site provides not only coastal data, but also the tools, training, and information needed to make these data truly useful. Content comes from many sources, all of which are vetted by NOAA. Data sets range from economic data to satellite imagery. The site contains visualization tools, predictive tools, and tools that make data easier to find and use.
Locate, view, download, or order global land remote sensing data derived from a variety of air- and satellite-borne sensors, including Landsat satellite imagery and data from the Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer carried aboard National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration's polar orbiting weather satellites.
NASA's EOSDIS provides the capability to interactively browse over 900 global, full-resolution satellite imagery layers and then download the underlying data. Many of the imagery layers are updated daily and are available within three hours of observation - essentially showing the entire Earth as it looks "right now". This supports time-critical application areas such as wildfire management, air quality measurements, and flood monitoring. Arctic and Antarctic views of many products are also available for a "full globe" perspective.
The FAO GeoNetwork provides Internet access to interactive maps, satellite imagery and related spatial databases maintained by the FAO and its partners. Its purpose is to improve access to and integrated use of spatial data and information.
Global Map is fundamental digital geospatial information covering the whole land of the globe. It was an effort central to the Global Mapping Project. Global Map data were developed under the cooperation of National Geospatial Information Authorities (NGIAs) of respective countries and regions. The project has now folded into UNEP.
The USGS Global Visualization Viewer (GloVis) is a quick and easy online search and order tool for selected satellite and aerial data. GloVis Next is the new generation of GloVis. GloVis will be retired in 2017.
IPUMS Terra provides global-scale data on human population characteristics, land use, land cover, climate and other environmental characteristics. It makes these data interoperable across time and space, disseminates them to the public and to multiple research communities, and preserves these precious resources for future generations.
"Staff from the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) and the University of New Hampshire have assembled a digital image map and a snow-grain-size image of the Antarctic continent and surrounding islands."
Their mission is to help you picture climate and environmental changes as they occur on our home planet. You can browse and download imagery of satellite data from NASA's constellation of Earth Observing System satellites. There are over 50 different global datasets represented with daily, weekly, and monthly snapshots, and images are available in a variety of formats including JPEG, PNG, Google Earth, and GeoTIFF.
