Entry ID: WSM_ONEARTH

[ Update this Record ]


Summary
Abstract: WMS server developed and hosted at JPL. The server software has been largely
developed to offer access to the WMS Global Mosaic data set via the OGC/WMS
protocol. Other large raster data sets are also available, including a global
30m SRTM RADAR image and an archive of dual daily composite of visual
MODIS/TERRA and MODIS/AQUA images obtained from the RapidFire MODIS subsets.
Other data sets originating outside JPL are the NASA Blue Marble, the NASA Blue
Marble Next Generation, the USGS 30m NED, a patched global 90m SRTM elevation
data set, a 30arc-second land elevation and bathymetric elevation. The server
supports the OGC/SLD standard for raster data sets. The WMS server can generate
JEPG,PNG and TIFF images, including higher byte count TIFF data sets for DEM.
