Earth-Now


NASA's Earth Now is an application that visualizes recent global climate data from Earth Science satellites, including surface air temperature, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, ozone, and water vapor as well as gravity and sea level variations. Data sets are visually described using "false color" maps. Color-coded legends are provided to indicate relative strength or weakness of an environmental condition. The resulting 3D model of the Earth may be rotated by a single finger stroke, and may also be zoomed in or out by pinching 2 fingers. It was developed by the Earth Science Communications and Visualization Technology Applications and Development Teams at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, with support from NASA Headquarters.

Recent changes:
Version 2.1 of Earth Now introduces a historical Carbon Dioxide animation showing data from September of 2002 through March of 2014.
You now can pause, step forward and step back through each frame of most animated datasets.
Version 2.1.1 resolves crash at startup

Excellent It gives a very clear view of surface of earth. While wandering I use it to identify my way a d destination as well as I challenge my friends to show and locate places, objects, roads and towns
