NASA has made a new remote sensing tool, Giovanni, available online.
“Giovanni is a Web-based application … that provides a simple and intuitive way to visualize, analyze, and access vast amounts of Earth science remote sensing data without having to download the data. Giovanni is an acronym for the GES-DISC (Goddard Earth Sciences Data and Information Services Center) Interactive Online Visualization ANd aNalysis Infrastructure.”
Giovanni is made available in four different categories of instances:
Each instance draws data from different sources that range from A-TRAIN to TRMM.
The Giovanni site provides a full users manual and information for users just starting out with the tool.
