Enhanced Elevation Data to Sharpen Global Focus on Climate Issues

Tuesday, September 23rd 2014

Today, September 23, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA), and the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS, a bureau of the U.S. Department of the Interior) released a collection of higher-resolution (more detailed) elevation datasets for Africa. The datasets were released following the President’s commitment at the United Nations to provide assistance for global efforts to combat climate change. The broad availability of more detailed elevation data across most of the African continent through the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM) will improve baseline information that is crucial to investigating the impacts of climate change on African communities. 

NASA/ISU RECOVER Program: Broad range of uses for natural disaster recovery

Thursday, September 18th 2014

Firefighter have tapped a GIS-satellite imagery decision support system designed by Idaho State University’s GIS (Geographic Information Systems) Training and Research Center and NASA to help with planning wildfire recovery. This system will be expanded for use throughout the western United States so it can used to help fire managers battle the large types of blazes that have occurred in Oregon, Washington and California this summer.

Observing Earth Today and Tomorrow: A National Plan

Monday, September 8th 2014

Humans have been observing Earth for a very long time simply because the conditions of the Earth are basic to our survival and our prosperity. Even the most ancient written records are filled with accounts of great floods, famines, and earthquakes. When to plant and when to harvest, how to use precious water resources most effectively, and ways to avoid natural disasters are all age-old challenges that have encouraged Earth observation from the beginning of civilization. But now we observe from afar.
