The GIBS imagery archive includes approximately 200 imagery products representing visualized science data from the NASA Earth Observing System. Each imagery product is generated at the native resolution of the source data to provide "full resolution" visualizations of a science parameter.  GIBS works closely with the science teams to identify the appropriate data range and color mappings, where appropriate, to provide the best quality imagery to the Earth science community.  Many GIBS imagery products are generated by the EOSDIS LANCE near real-time processing system resulting in imagery available in GIBS within 3.5 hours of observation.  These products and others may also extend from present to the beginning of the satellite mission.  In addition, GIBS makes available supporting imagery layers such as data/no-data, water masks, orbit tracks, and graticules to improve imagery usage.

The GIBS team is actively engaging the NASA EOSDIS data centers to add more imagery products and to extend their coverage throughout the life of the mission.  The remainder of this page provides a structured view of the layers currently available within GIBS grouped by science discipline and science observation.  For information regarding how to access these products, see the GIBS API section of this wiki.  For information regarding how to access these products through an existing client, refer to the Map Library and GIS Client sections of this wiki.  If you are aware of a science parameter that you would like to see visualized, please contact us at support@earthdata.nasa.gov.

 

As noted above, imagery products within GIBS are generated based on near real-time and standard science products. To understand the difference between these two data products, review the instrument sections on the Near real-time versus Standard Products page.

Multiband Imagery

Multiband imagery are visible products that have been created through a process of mapping one or more spectral bands to RGB composite image.  Based on the selection of spectral band "combinations" and how they are mapped to the RGB visible bands, different observations will be made more apparent.  As an example, the MODIS instrument has 7 spectral bands that are typically used to generate a visible image.  There are 210 non-repeating band combinations that can be generated.  As such, GIBS works with its imagery providers to select the "highest value" band combinations for visualization.  The following tables identify the existing multiband imagery available in GIBS:

Science Parameter Visualizations

Science parameter visualizations are generated by mapping scientific measurements into an RGB image.  Each measured value, or range of values, is assigned a unique color to create a visual representation of the underlying data values.  This may also apply to classification data.  Choose one of the following science disciplines, or scroll down, to view the imagery products available within GIBS.

Utility Layers

While viewing an the previous multiband and science parameter visualization layers, GIBS offers the following "utility' layers to improve imagery viewability.  These layers include data or imagery masks that highlight or remove specific regions of an image and also mapping aides such as graticules and coastlines. The following tables identify the existing utility layers within GIBS:

[6]  The Arctic Coastlines are generated based on information available at OpenStreetMap© under the Open Database License.  Antarctic Coastlines are generated based on information available through the SCAR Antarctic Digital Database.

[7] All 3 Blue Marble layers are created from the August 2004 jpeg images. See official page for more information.


[1] The Imagery Resolution is the resolution of the image offered on the GIBS system. Generally the imagery resolution is of equal or higher resolution than the native or sensor resolution. Web Mercator imagery is generated by re-sampling the geographically projected imagery. In that process, the closest corresponding resolution is used.

[2] The Sensor Resolution, also known as native resolution, is provided as a reference not to be confused with the imagery resolution explained in [1]. This is the resolution of the source product elements which went into making the imagery product served in GIBS.

[4] The Geographic projection is WGS84 latitude/longitude, EPSG:4326. The north Polar projection is NSIDC Sea Ice Polar Stereographic North, EPSG:3413. The south Polar projection is Antarctic Polar Stereographic, EPSG:3031. The Web Mercator projection is WGS84 latitude/longitude, EPSG:3857.
