We've been burning the midnight oil to bring you some new features and lots of new imagery in GIBS and Worldview.

Learn more about what's going on around the world with Worldview's new tour!

Our latest feature in Worldview is our tour!

This tour is now more story focused, bringing you 9 different stories about events going on around the world, interesting tidbits about the imagery, imagery tutorials and information on how to use Worldview.

We'll update the tour stories regularly to keep it fresh!






Go to Worldview, https://worldview.earthdata.nasa.gov to check it out!

Tip: If you get tired of seeing the tour window every time you open Worldview, check the box "Do not show until a new story has been added". 

And all the new imagery...!

We've fallen way behind on letting you know about the new imagery in GIBS and Worldview. We've come to a whopping 800+ imagery layers, adding almost 200 layers since our last imagery related blog post in September 2017, and the number keeps on growing!
