Title: USGS Global Visualization Viewer (GloVis)
Url: http://glovis.usgs.gov/
Publisher: Geological Survey (U.S.)
Description: This interactive viewer provides access to satellite imagery for virtually any point on the Earth. Users can select a satellite and sensor and either type in latitude and longitude or click on a point on the index map. The viewer will show a mosaic of the most recent cloud-free satellite browse images around the point selected. It will appear in a new window along with some metadata, including path, row, and scene information, satellite and sensor, and date. Users can also navigate to adjacent images by using the arrow buttons, create and modify scene lists, and choose from a selection of map layers such as political boundaries, roads, water, a north arrow, and others. A user's guide is included.
