View Resource Dynamic Digital Maps

A Dynamic Digital Map (DDM) is a stand-alone program that displays and links maps, images, movies, data and text, such as map explanations and field trip guides. DDMs appear as thematic maps containing camera icons and map symbols that link images, movies and text or analytical data related to the mapped locations. DDM content, and access to it, is summarized by a searchable list of images, maps,...

View Resource My NASA Data Lesson Plan: Seasons and Cloud Cover: Are They Related?

This lesson plan uses NASA satellite data to correlate cloud cover over Africa to the solar declination. The four seasons on Earth have a scientific basis. The earth is tilted 23.5 degrees from vertical. This tilt and the Earth's orbit around the sun are the reasons for the seasons. Earth's tilt and orbital position cause differing angles at which the sun's rays hit the surface of the Earth. As...

View Resource Earth Now! Landsat Image Viewer

This viewer lets users see near real-time images from the Landsat 5 Thematic Mapper (TM) and Landsat 7 Enhanced Thematic Mapper Plus (ETM+). When a Landsat satellite passes within range of the ground station at the USGS Center for Earth Resources Observation and Science (EROS), image data are downlinked and displayed in near-real time. When no satellites are within range, the most recent pass is...
