Online Access

Online access to KML/KMZ files for NASA imagery datais available in the following. Interested users can first download an example in the left to view and experience it in Google Earth to decide if they really need to access the online system. Please downloadGoogle Earth here.

The online accessable NASA imagery includes:

  • CloudSat
  • Cloud-Aerosol Lidar and Infrared Pathfinder Satellite Obervation (CALIPSO).
  • Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS)/Aqua
  • Tropical Rainfall Measurement Mission (TRMM)
  • Atmosphere InfRad Sounder (AIRS)/Aqua
